UniverSoul Circus returns to Columbia | Community Spirit
June 13 - 17, the UniverSoul Circus will return to Columbia with a big top thrill-ride infused with an unparalleled global mix of circus artistry, music, dance and style – all inspired by reflections of the world around US.
The UniverSoul Circus 2012 production entitled “US” – featuring Shaolin Kung Fu acrobats from China, bone-breaking contortionists with a hop-hop flair from Guinea, hilarious acrobatic comedy from South Africa, and pro-style hip hop dancers from the United States – will be performing in Columbia in the parking lot Benedict College Football Stadium.
Tickets are on sale now at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
“At UniverSoul Circus, we’re one big happy family – and that includes our fans,” said Founder and President Cedric Walker. “Without you, there is no US. This year’s production titled simply, yet profoundly, “US” – includes 14 outstanding acts from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas – all coming together to create an unforgettable global experience. ”
The show’s creative team includes Cedric Walker, who regularly travels the globe to find amazing talent, and award winning live entertainment production designer Tom Marzullo. Marzullo has designed and/or managed the production of major international tours for some of the biggest names in show business, including T-Pain, KISS, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo and Prince. Most recently, Marzullo designed, produced and managed the production for Justin Bieber’s international My World Tour, which earned Marzullo the 2010 Tour Link Top Dog Award for Production Manager of the Year.
