The intoxicating pulse of South Africa comes alive in Mother Africa: a new show mixing breath-taking circus, dance and live music.

Set in Cape Town’s largest township, Khayelitsha, dozens of acrobats, dancers and musicians from seven African countries come together to create this irresistible feast of classic circus stunts, spectacle and traditional African culture.

With vibrant beats, infectious energy, shimmering costumes and mind blowing tricks and feats, Mother Africa is fun-filled entertainment for the whole family.

"Exuberant, high-energy entertainment"
