THE RYDGES POST
You can catch the sensational Mother Africa in Cairns at the Convention Centre on Saturday, July 19.
The Mother Africa experience has been getting rave reviews wherever it has been – over two million people have seen the show to date and the heart-felt passion and African artistry has had critics describing the theatrical even as ‘enthralling’, ‘a theatrical treasure’, ‘a feel-good spectacular par excellence’. The inspiration and the performers come from Ethiopia, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Ivory Coast, Benin, Zimbabwe and Guinea.
Along with the pulsating rhythm in the music there are amazing acrobatics, contortionists, storytellers, percussionists and dancers presenting the contemporary, complex and dynamic culture of ‘new’ Africa.
"Rich in rhythm and robust in song, Mother Africa's acrobats, musicians and dancers light up the stage in a powerful performance of stunning African artistry." TheaterMania.com
"This jubilant 90-minute spectacle delivers one thrill after another." Time Out, New York
“A swirl of colour and movement that keeps its audience clapping and cheering throughout... Mother Africa is a vibrant high-energy production..." The Gold Coast Bulletin
