Add to Calendar 06-12-2013 05-01-2014 15 'Mother Africa' Merry and bright, Mother Africa will shine in a powerful performance of stunning African artistry when Circus Der Sinne makes its U.S. Premiere from Dec. 6–Jan. 5 at The New Victory Theater. Featuring a diverse cast from different countries throughout the African continent, Mother Africa mixes modern circus arts with traditional African dance and music. Based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the show features a cast of more than two dozen acrobats, musicians, and dancers who will fill the New Victory stage with breathtaking feats, exuberant afro-beats, and a swirl of colorful bazin and kitenge fabrics. Rare acts like the thrilling Icarian Games from Ethiopia, in which foot jugglers toss fellow acrobats into the air, join crowd favorites like a chair stack from Tanzania, and a contortionist from Kenya described as "the most flexible man in the world." A live band keeps the party going with every strike of the congos and strum of the mbira, while stilt dancers, gumboot steppers and a marvel of traditional masks showcase Africa's expressive dance culture. Rich in rhythm and robust in song, Mother Africa has earned rave reviews around the globe and has performed for nearly 1 million people worldwide since the show's debut in 2006. Mother Africahas a running time of 90 minutes including one intermission and is recommended for everyone ages five and older. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=149895 New Victory Theater true DD/MM/YYYY
