Cirque Mother Africa

When: Tue., Jan. 3, 7:30 p.m. 2017

In the Bantu language of the Xhosas, khayelitsha means “new home.” It is also the title of Cirque Mother Africa’s high-energy stage show set to hit the Flynn MainStage. World-class performing artists from seven African nations including Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe carry out this rhythmic exploration of the daily hustle and bustle of the South African township. Through thunderous percussion, jaw-dropping acrobatics, eye-popping costumes, and a combination of traditional movement and modern break dancing, Khayelitsha exudes the positive energy and hopeful spirit of its namesake.

Price: $15-36.
