Cirque of the Dead

  • OBERON 2 Arrow St Cambridge, MA (map)

“The sense of escapism Cirque of the Dead represents, gory and grim as it may be, is invaluable and beautifully articulated with supreme commitment to physical flights of fancy. Cirque of the Dead is absolutely your speed if you’re in the mood for horror movies, fake blood, boobs, and leotards.”


Join us this Halloween season for Cirque of the Dead, a naughty nightmare of circus spectacle!

This year, we turn the page on a new chapter and invite you to a grim Choose Your Own Adventure – zombies, vampires, haunted delights and other magical creatures will fill the evening with never-before-seen aerial acts, acrobatics, and more. This seductive adults-only Halloween horror spectacular is not for the faint of heart, but is filled with as much humor as it is with gore.

Immerse yourself in the festivities while performers suspend themselves above you and lurk all around the venue. Sit back and enjoy a custom cocktail while getting up-close and personal with an acrobatic monstrosity. Fall under the spell of the high-energy Synthrock and nerd-nostalgia band Minusworld and dance the night away to their live music. Fall into the story and help seek the light in a world of darkness and mischief.
