First recognized on “America’s Got Talent,” Cirque Zuma Zuma is a vibrant and exuberant group that blends a medley of nonstop acrobatic action, upbeat rhythm and African culture into a five-star show set for Monday, Feb. 16, at 8 p.m. in the Seretean Concert Hall at Oklahoma State University.
After sold out seasons in Europe and Australia, Cirque Zuma Zuma offers Oklahoma its special combination of culture and cirque with never-before-seen acts that include dance, music, acrobatics, tumbling, juggling and contortionism. Every second of the nonstop theatrical cirque performance will keep viewers enthralled and captivated by the mysticism of Africa and its rituals.
