Galumpha’s comedic acrobats to perform March 17

February  24, 2012

Galumpha

Galumpha combines acrobatics, physical comedy and inventive choreography to create its “have-to-see-it-to-believe-it” brand of entertainment. Galumpha will take the stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, in Centennial Hall.

Tickets are available at the Augustana Ticket Office, 3703 7th Ave., Rock Island, during regular business hours. Or they can be charged by phone at (309) 794-7306 or purchased online at augustana.edu/tickets.

General admission tckets are $8. Augustana faculty, staff and students are admitted free and should pick up tickets at the ticket office in person.

Described as an “experiment in human architecture,” Galumpha uses imagination, athleticism and grace to form shapes and structural forms that seem to break the laws of physics. This will be the trio’s first performance at Augustana.

Galumpha’s successful mix of art and entertainment won the Edinburgh Festival Critics’ Choice Award and the Moers International Comedy Arts Prize. The group has appeared on such shows and networks as The Late Show with David Letterman, Crook and Chase (TNN), MTV, Showtime and A&E.
