Black and Blues are more than just colors, they are a state of mind; Brothers is more than just a word, it is a way of life. Five unleashed acrobats/dancers joining the energy of Africa with the inimitable Rhythm & Blues sound, dressed in elegant American style.
The show, set in an elegant Cotton Club style bar, is exciting and funny, perfect for all kinds of audience. All the objects and props on the stage become an instrument for new acrobatic performances: chairs, tables and even mirrors are used for playing by the Black Blues Brothers, who can do incredible physical theatre acrobatics among hilarious gags, funny stripteases and amusing dance challenges, involving everybody.
A lot of fun for spectators of every kind and age, who can't resist to the contagious happiness the Black Blues Brothers spread.
Between contemporary circus and musical comedy their show, conceived by Alexander Sunny (producer of several successful shows and curator of Italian tv specials about the Cirque du Soleil) enchanted theatres and festivals all over Europe with its energy and joy.
The Black Blues Brothers are a group of five Kenyan acrobats from Sarakasi, a social circus trust created by Marion and Rudy van Dijck (important UN officer) to develop live arts in Africa and help young people coming from disadvantaged situations. Their energy comes from the opportunity Saraksi offered to them!

The Black Blues Brothers were hosted by Prince Albert for the Tennis Rolex Master Gala at the Sporting Club of Monte Carlo.
The huge success let the acrobats participate to the final of Tú sí que vales Italia and to the famous French TV program Le plus grand cabaret du monde, the top for these exhibitions, where they were acclaimed with a standing ovation.
