Cirque Berzerk onstage at Club Nokia

Burlesque circus group Cirque Berzerk began its' one month residency at Club Nokia last weekend, moving across Downtown from a red and white tent at the Los Angeles State Historic Park to a state-of-the-art concert venue at L.A. Live.

While many of the diehards who have followed the show since its inception at Burning Man have criticized the change, the show is now accessible to a wider audience with better facilities, equipment and amentities.

This is not your Ringling Bros. circus of yesteryear.

The alternative show is filled with punk rock stilt walkers, clowns and sexy aerialists. While a solid storyline may be missing or hard to grasp, the troupe's performance is still stellar and entertaining.

Some may be turned off by the slightly risqué theme, but any open-minded lover of arts should appreciate the great costumes, ambience and stage design.

The performers and vendors interact with attendees during intermission, making for an all-around pleasant vibe. AEG / Goldenvoice has done an outstanding job of transforming Club Nokia into a contemporary theatre space and taking risk on a one month residency. The best seats can be purchased for half the cost of a typical Vegas performance and are comparable to your average concert ticket price.

Shows run through January 30.

We've got five pairs of tickets to give away for the 11pm show on Friday, January 14 Saturday, January 15. To enter, just sign in and tell us why you should be picked to go see the show. Contest closes on Thursday at 10pm.
