Kenya Safari Acrobats
October 1, 2013
Festival Concert Hall
The Kenya Safari Acrobats are from the heart of Africa and trained there as children before they became world famous performers. They perform a non-stop ride of gravity-defying human pyramids, balancing, tumbling, limbo dancing, hurling through hoops and breathtaking contortions, all while clapping to a joyful Benga beat. They are a unique and eye-popping blend of traditional arts and circus skills in classic African style.
