Banners Hosts Kenya/Safari Acrobats

Acrobats(April 7, 2014) The Kenya Safari Acrobats will "leap" into Burton Coliseum at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 11, with the exciting production of "Lost in Africa" as part of the 2014 McNeese State University Banners Cultural Season.
           
"Lost in Africa" features death-defying stunts, comedy, audience participation and heart-pounding music combined to create an unforgettable production for all ages.
           
The story follows a tourist in Africa who, after being separated from his group, stumbles upon an abandoned native village. When the natives find and trap him, the tourist must figure out different ways to "buy time" by creating games to distract them. Audience members will be worked into the plot and brought to the stage throughout the show in this entertaining performance.
           
A unique and eye-popping blend of traditional arts and circus skills in classic African style, this show features a number of amazing stunts including Bed of Nails, High-flying Jump Rope, Human Pyramids, Contortion, Chair Stacking and much more.
These amazing athletes have performed for corporate events, fairs and festivals around the world.
           
Banners memberships start at $80 for the season. Tickets to individual performances will be available at the door at $20 for adults, $5 for students and free to McNeese and Sowela students with IDs. Lectures are open free to the public. Banners is supported by memberships, corporate sponsors and grants.
