Kenyan Acrobats to Perform at UW Feb. 27

February 23, 2015

The Kenya Safari Acrobats will perform a show titled, “Googala,” Friday, Feb. 27, at 9 p.m. in the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Natives of Kenya, the acrobats perform a variety of gravity-defying stunts such as high-flying jump rope, human pyramids, tumbling and contortion. “Googala” tells the story of a tourist lost and abandoned in an African village. Startling the natives, the tourist tries to avoid death by playing games.

“A combination of death-defying stunts, comedy, audience participation and heart-pounding music creates a show that you don’t want to miss,” says Cassie Herndon, UW Campus Activities Center intern.

UW Friday Night Fever and Visual and Cultural Arts sponsor the performance.

Friday Night Fever also will show “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” the same night in the Wyoming Union Family Room at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. In the third installment of “The Hobbit,” Bilbo Baggins and company are forced into war against an array of enemies to keep the Lonely Mountain from falling into the hands of a rising darkness.
