"America's Got Talent" finalist Cirque Zuma Zuma will perform at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Zorn Arena. This Artists Series performance group features a dazzling ensemble of African dancers, acrobats, contortionists, jugglers and more.
Cirque Zuma Zuma features disciplined performers who are trained in Kenya and Tanzania. Many describe the group as an African-style Cirque du Soleil. Known as the "ultimate African Circus," this show is filled with nonstop action and African culture, including dance, acrobatics, tumbling and music.
Cirque Zuma Zuma combines the mysticism of Africa with the excitement of a theatrical cirque performance. With live music and percussionists, the talented cast performs an action-packed show of pole and aerial acts, Egyptian limbo dances, South African gumboot dances, Gabonese tumbling and South African contortionists' feats which will keep the audience breathless.
A meet-and-greet reception in Zorn Arena will follow the performance.
All tickets are available for order online, at the Service Center, 715-835-3727, in Davies Center's east lobby or at the door the day of the event.
