The Black Blues Brothers is an acrobatic tribute to the legendary movie The Blues Brothers, brought to the stage by five Kenyan acrobats whose world tour has exceeded 700 dates and 300,000 spectators, including Pope Francis, Prince Albert of Monaco and the British royal family. In an elegant Cotton Club-style venue, following the whims of a whimsical vintage radio playing R&B music, the bartender and the porters transform into tightrope walkers, flag-wavers, jugglers and fire acrobats, engaging the audience with human pyramids, fire limbos, acrobatic jumps with ropes and in hoops and much more, accompanied by the overwhelming soundtrack notes from John Landis’ cult film.
