CIRQUE AFRICA -ADELAIDE FRINGE 2017
CIRQUE AFRICA BIG TOP – HINDMARSH SQUARE
Cirque Africa, appearing for the first time in Adelaide, is a very professional but fresh high energy show featuring incredible athletes and musicians. The live musical accompaniment was a wonderful constant whose timing, and that of the acrobats, was spot on.
Arriving a few minutes late for this show I was amazed to find the audience already cheering, clapping and stamping their feet. Their enthusiasm did not abate for the duration of the show and they left smiling, laughing, and full of praise. Being a Sunday there were many family groups in attendance and it was obvious that it was enjoyed by people of all ages.
Expertly presented by Wilson Ruddle, himself an ex-acrobat and the trainer of this troupe, this colourful vibrant show featuring performers from four African countries astonishes with its levels of strength and skill, daring and enthusiasm, humour and beauty. The cast are very friendly and more than happy to chat and share their stories after the show.
