Cook Series Event: Zuzu African Acrobats
Location: Cook Theatre, Cloud County Community College, Concordia campus

Cook Series event, African Acrobats on February 7, 2019 

The Zuzu African Acrobats is a high energy acrobatic group from Mombasa, Kenya, who appeared on America's Got Talent - and made it all the way to the semi-finals!  The Acrobats will be appearing at Superbowl LIII in Atlanta and then will be at Cloud County Community College on February 7 at 7:00 pm in Cook Theatre to present an energetic celebration of traditional Bantu culture.   

Their 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 even give a lecture after the show is over to tell their audiences what it was like to grow up in Kenya, to learn a hallowed tradition from their ancestors and take questions from the audience. 

All Cook Series events are free and open to the public!

This year marks the 27th anniversary 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. Over 70 events have been presented under the auspices of the Cook Foundation and the Division of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Business in the past quarter-century. It always has been Marian Cook’s wish that all Cook Series events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Brenton Phillips, Dean of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Business, at Cloud County Community College, 2221 Campus Drive, Concordia.
