In 2011, a group of performers under the name of Zuma Zuma impressed the judges and audience from the stage of America’s Got Talent. Their energy, rhythm and insane acrobatics are what drove their success, and their performance is only a taste of what has now become Cirque Zuma Zuma. This internationally traveling circus troupe has often been compared to Cirque du Soleil. Training in Kenya and Tanzania, the troupe now has 120 contortionists, dancers, acrobats and singers from across the African continent. Want to see synchronized ladder jumping and human pyramids? Want to see a man fit his body through a tennis racket? The two-hour production has all that and more.
