ED2012 Physical Review: Mother Africa

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Physical Reviews

After a slight technical hitch and an intro from an MC who preaches about what makes a good live audience, Mother Africa, a circus spectacular who have been touring the world since 2006, take over the Assembly Hall. This all singing, all dancing (tap, gumboot with a spot of juggling and acrobatics thrown in) troupe set the room ablaze with their tremendous strength, stamina and showmanship. The live band are a constant driving force that hold the stand-alone acts together and make for a slick, robust performance. From pulsating rhythms and vibrant energy to more mellow numbers with some gorgeous harmony arrangements, this show has something for everyone, all members of the family indeed.

Assembly Hall, 2-27 Aug (not 13, 20), 2.20pm.
