⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Every year our Kids in Adelaide Team have to ‘rock paper scissors’ for who gets to review this show. We all love it, and the 2020 version is no exemption. Five solid stars from the KiA team.

Tonight we clapped, cheered and foot stomped a big welcome back to one of our favourites, Winston Ruddle and his team of familiar beaming smiles, Cirque Africa. The talent, music and charismatic African energy that you will experience in this show are second to none and will take you on a one hour journey like no other. This truly is the ultimate family show.

Don’t miss this show. Really, don’t. Underpinned by light comedy, you will love acrobatics, musicians, contortionists and more. You will be in awe of their strength, coordination and flexibility. Finally you will leave with smiles as big and bright as the performers them selves.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Bend it like Beckham or circle the air like Cirque Africa…. The African experience has risen to new heights (literally) with Program #2 (yes there are two Cirque Africa Shows). When you want more spinning, balancing, dancing and flipping in your Fringe Binge… grab your tribe come and visit Africa for an hour of amazement and high energy performance

Cirque Africa 2.0 is so different to Cirque Africa 1.0! There are a variety of solo acts and groups acts, a girl who seems to have legs that are made of elastic, a duo who never listened to their parents and have mastered no hands in EVERYTHING! The kids will love it from 4+ and adults to grandparents. The African culture will leave you smiling and if you can only make one show… I would say “hakuna matata” this is your show to see!
