The live performance comes to Alma College at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 in the Remick Heritage Center. Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for seniors 62 and up, and free for Alma College staff, students and youth 18 and under. Seating is reserved. Call (989) 463-7304 for ticket information.

A product of African Acrobats International, the African-style circus features non-stop action, colorful costumes and talented African artists. The show includes percussionists, hula hoops, chair balancing, hoops diving, foot juggling, tumbling, various ethnic dances and more.

Online reviews of the show cite “good music,” “amazing acrobatics” and “non-stop dancing.”

“As scientists continue to seek out new forms of alternative energy, I would suggest they check out Cirque Zuma Zuma,” wrote one online reviewer of the show. “From the time the troupe hits the stage they are dancing and don’t stop until their final bow.”
