Cirque Mother Africa 2012 To Perform At Resorts World Manila

For the first time in Manila, the world-renowned Cirque Mother Africa (created by professional acrobat Winston Ruddle) will dazzle and mesmerize local audiences with wild African music, dance and performance in a two-hour showcase starting from April 19 to 22 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila.

Having performed in sold-out shows staged in Germany, Italy, Romania, Russia, Netherlands, Australia, Belgium and Spain – Cirque Mother Africa will tantalize audiences in Manila with a unique African-themed spectacle.

The circus show, with a cast of 45 performers, started in Tanzania in October 2006. A world premiere in Germany in December 2006 followed and “Mama Africa – Circus of Joy” was born. Dancers, percussionists, singers, acrobats and contortionists energetically take to the stage in a celebration of the culture of the traditional and modern African arts & culture.

The heartbeat of Africa pulsates throughout the jaw-dropping show as the musicians and artistes articulate their passion and love for their homeland including Ethiopia, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Ivory Coast, Benin, Zimbabwe, and Guinea.

The innovative show combines the talents from nine African countries to provide the wonder, suspense and joy of Cirque Mother Africa.

The show is a delight for the senses with items spun through the air, bodies contorted into mind-boggling shapes, and performers balance on other performers, percussionists beat up a storm of sound and traditional dancers tell their own stories. The audience will be overwhelmed by the complexity and versatility of these world-class acts.

Masks, drums, beads, and amazing costumes all bring forth the feel of authentic African traditions.

Cirque Mother Africa is not just a traditional African show. It also has a take on the modern, fresh and dynamic culture of the new Africa. Young acrobats perform feats that belong in any world-class circus, and energetic young performers compete in tap-dancing that is a toe-tapping delight. This is a fresh and fantastic show that evokes passion and demands a response. Audiences are encouraged, prodded and charmed to actively respond rather than to simply watch a breath-taking spectacle.

Mama Africa’s team wants to help in a more lasting way. Part of the income from the tickets sold during the forthcoming Mama Africa Tour will go towards development projects in Africa, for example, Karl-Heinz Böhm’s Ethiopian aid project People for People which has been in existence for thirty years. The “Circus of the Senses” stand s out by it s enchanting diversity, incredible lightness and fresh, modern, dynamic approach. Mama Africa draws its particular character from a special mixture of traditional African circus, modern circus and show elements, impressive acrobatics, rousing live music and choreography deeply rooted in the African culture, teamed with the incredible energy and joy-of life of a whole continent that is considered the cradle of humanity.
