The Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern University will host the Zuzu African Acrobats Thursday, Oct. 12, at 7:30 p.m. for the next show in their 20th anniversary season.
Hailing from Tanzania, ZuZu African Acrobats celebrate the 2,000-year-old Bantu culture of East Africa with their thrilling, gravity-defying stunts. This interactive show includes traditional acts such as human pyramids, dish spinning, drumming, stick balance, contortion, chair balance, unicycling, juggling, hand-to-hand balance, pole acts, hoop diving, and more, along with a healthy dose of comedy, performed to the exciting sounds of African beats. Each acrobat has graduated from the Baba Watoto School for Performing Arts, which is internationally renowned for producing the highest quality performers. Through these artists, the grace, beauty, and strength of Africa stands as living testimony presented through living human art and entertainment. Every member of the family is sure to enjoy this culturally enriching and endlessly delightful performance.
“This is a great family-friendly show that people of all ages can enjoy,” said Erin Barbeck, interim director of Georgia Southern’s Performing Arts Center. “Come marvel at the athleticism, strength and grace of these wonderful artists.”
