Cloud County Community College issued the following announcement on Jan. 24.
The Zuzu African Acrobats will perform on Thursday, Feb. 7 as part of the Cloud County Community College Cook Series. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be at 7 p.m. in the college’s Cook Theatre.
The Zuzu African Acrobats are a dynamic group from Mombasa, Kenya, who made it to the semifinals on the television show “America’s Got Talent.” The group will be appearing at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, and will then tour Kansas for an extended run during Black History Month. They will be presenting their energetic celebration of traditional Bantu culture for the people of North Central Kansas.
This show features high-energy pyramid building, chair balancing, hat juggling, comedy, super-fast skip rope, hoop diving, and much more. It’s all wrapped up in a cultural experience that is truly representative of the coastal regions of Kenya. They also give a lecture after the show to tell the audience what it was like to grow up in Kenya learning hallowed traditions from their ancestors. They will also take audience questions.
This year marks the 27th year of the Charles and Marian Cook Series at Cloud County Community College. The Cooks were travelers who wanted to bring the world to those who could not travel themselves. More than 70 events have been presented through the sponsorship of the Cook Foundation and the Division of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Business at CCCC. It was always Marian Cook’s wish that all Cook Series events be free and open to the public.
For more information, contact Brenton Phillips, Dean of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Business at CCCC.
