The performance is sponsored by the Marshall County Arts Cooperative.

Known as the “ultimate African circus,” this show is filled with non-stop action and African culture, including dance, acrobatics, tumbling, and music.

Cirque Zuma Zuma features disciplined performers who are trained in Kenya and Tanzania. Many describe it as an African-style Cirque du Soleil. The performance showcases an array of never before seen talents mixed with some of the best skills associated with African variety arts.

The term “cirque” refers to a style of performance that incorporates circus arts such as clowning, acrobatics, mime, trapeze, stunts, and more and then adds a layer of theatricality not usually seen in a standard circus performance.

Cirque Zuma Zuma combines the mysticism of Africa with the excitement of a theatrical cirque performance. With live music and percussionists, the cast performs an action-packed show of pole and aerial acts, Egyptian limbo dances, South African gumboot dances, Gabonese tumbling, and South African contortionist feats.

Advance tickets may be purchased at the eMpTy Cup Coffee Bar & Bistro and Galloway, Wiegers, & Brinegar law office, Marysville.
