UniverSoul Circus Returns to Los Angeles March 16th-31st
UniverSoul Circus presents an unforgettable global experience of circus arts, music, dance and style in their 2013 “Mash it Up” tour.
UniverSoul Circus has created a big top thrill-ride infused with an unparalleled global mix of circus artistry, music, dance and style – all inspired by reflections of today’s global culture. The 2013 edition of UniverSoul Circus – the MASH IT UP tour – featuring a head balance act from Viet Nam, seven beautiful bone-breaking contortionists from Ethiopia, and a dazzling ice skating act from right here in the USA – will be performing from Saturday, March 16-31 at Hollywood Horse Park in Los Angeles.
“At UniverSoul Circus, we’re one big happy family – and that includes our fans,” said Founder and President Cedric Walker. “This year’s production is entitled the MASH IT UP tour because it fuses a special blend of cultures, music and styles with world class acts from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas to create an unforgettable entertainment experience for the entire family.”
The show’s creative team includes Walker, who regularly travels the globe to find amazing talent, and award winning live entertainment production designer Tom Marzullo. Marzullo has designed and/or managed the production of major international tours for some of the biggest names in show business, including T-Pain, KISS, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo and Prince. Marzullo designed, produced and managed the production for Justin Bieber’s international My World Tour, which earned Marzullo the 2010 Tour Link Top Dog Award for Production Manager of the Year.
