The Galaxy of Stars series continues Friday, Feb. 5, when the Galumpha Acrobatic Dance Trio performs a mix of art and entertainment along with award-winning choreography at 7:30 p.m. at Western Carolina University’s John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.
The three performers combine stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy and inventive choreography. Their performance features a fast-paced, athletic brand of movement. The group was formed in 2002 by Andy Horowitz and Greg O’Brien. They have performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” the 2002 MDA Jerry Lewis Telethon, MTV and Showtime. Galumpha’s choreography has won the Edinburgh Festival Critics’ Choice Award and the Moers International Comedy Arts Prize.
Tickets are $21 for adults, $16 for WCU faculty and staff, and $7 for students and children. They can be purchased by calling the Bardo Arts Center box office at 828-227-2479 or online at bardoartscenter.wcu.edu.
