School Holiday Fun at Cirque Africa
The Big Top Returns with exciting acrobatic shows these school holidays with a unique African experience. This high energy, uplifting sell-out performance is a fun filled event, bringing the African culture to life.
Originally founded in Tanzania, Cirque Africa was originally an underground acrobatic school in Kinondoni, Dar es Salaam in 2003. However, since then this acrobatic show has grown to be the home of many of Africa’s most notable acrobatic acts.
Consisting of 10 performing artists, Cirque Africa includes acrobats, dancers, percussionists, musicians, and contortionists from four different African countries.
Immerse yourself in their performance under the heated and seated Big Top Tent and marvel as Cirque Africa performs their high energy, knuckle-biting acrobatic acts and mesmerizes you with their stunning and colourful African costumes.
With numerous breathtaking performances every day of the school holidays, whether it’s wet or dry, this all-weather activity for kids in Melbourne is not to be missed.
