Old-style clowns in traditional circus show

The circus is in town. The Sheraton Grande Walkerhill is hosting “Zephora,” a traditional Roncalli-style circus show this winter.
The show will feature all the usual fun of traditional circus acts, such as aerial trapeze, acrobats, dancers, jugglers, a water show and, of course, clowns.
The show is directed by Lindy and Ben Russell and the performers come from all over Europe.
The 65,000 won ($70) package includes a five-course dinner.
“Quidam,” a modern circus performed by the world-famous group Cirque du Soleil proved highly popular when it stormed into town earlier this year.
The organizers say that, in contrast to the modernity of Quidam, Zephora goes back to the roots of traditional European circus acts and can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Zephora will have open-run performances at the Gayageum Hall at the Sheraton Grande Walkerhill every Monday through Saturday.
There will be two performances daily, at 5:30 and 8 p.m.
Tickets range from 65,000 won to 135,000 won, depending on the dinner course and seating.
There’s also a package including the circus show, a night at a deluxe room at the hotel and a five-course dinner for 270,000 won.
