UniverSoul Circus presents “US”
An unforgettable global experience of circus arts, music, dance and style--
coming to Philadelphia Oct. 24-Nov. 4
UniverSoul Circus has created 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 hip-hop flair from Guinea, and hilarious acrobatic comedy from South Africa – will be performing in Fairmont Park in Philadelphia, Oct. 24-Nov. 4.
"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 13 outstanding acts from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas – all coming together to create an unforgettable global experience. "
The UniverSoul Circus 2012 North American tour of "US" kicked off in January in Tampa followed by Miami, Atlanta, and a host of other cities including New York City and Washington, D.C., Detroit and Chicago before moving to Philadelphia. The international cast includes 80 world-class acrobats, contortionists, aerialists, martial artists, dancers, comedians, clowns, tigers, horses and elephants.
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.
