The dazzling talents of one of the world’s most popular acrobatic troupes, Cirque Zuma Zuma, will be on display at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 8, in the Seby B. Jones Performing Arts Center (JPAC) on the Louisburg College campus. Their show is the final event of the 2015-2016 season of the Allen de Hart Concert Series.
Audiences and critics in Europe and Australia agree: Cirque Zuma Zuma is unlike anything they have ever seen before. Described as an African-style Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Zuma Zuma packs every show with non-stop action and incredible features that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. Comprised of uniquely talented individuals from numerous African nations, the Zuma Zuma show features fantastic cirque acrobats who made their North American primetime television debut on “America’s Got Talent.” The cirque spectacle is wrapped in a colorfully costumed troupe of talented artists, including South African vocalists, gumboot dancers and contortionists, Zimbabwean percussionists, Egyptian limbo dancers, Gabonese tumblers, amazing pole acts and many more.
