Universal Soul Circus -- schedule

A number of you have been asking me about the tour schedule for this year's Universal Soul Circus, a.k.a. UniverSoul Circus. The good news is that they've finally finished updating their site. The bad news? Flash-intensive, meaning that information is even more difficult to pin down.

Here's the skinny on the schedule...

...and a couple recent articles:

[1] B. Schaeffer, "Intimate UniverSoul is in-tent on thrilling," in Daily News. New York, 15 Apr 2005.

[The UnivserSoul Circus is] an energetic, intimate show that sets stunts to R&B, hip hop, gospel, jazz and salsa - and the only African-American-operated circus in the country. The 11-year-old circus recruits performers from around the world.
While the UniverSoul Circus lacks the glitzy Broadway polish of three-ring extravaganzas, it offers an ebullient vibe, blending standard circus acts with breathtaking nontraditional stunts. The tiny tent also affords a close-up view of the acts - giving audiences the feeling that anything is possible and leaving both kids and adults on the edge of their seats.

[2] W. Woodberry Jr, "UniverSoul sets up tent," in Daily News. New York, 4 Apr 2005.

There are Caribbean dancers, African wire walkers, South African contortionists, Chinese trapeze artists, Dominican and Colombian daredevils, Argentine pole balancers, Jamaican and Cuban hand balancers, and French aerial-strap artists.
In effect, we have reinvented the circus," said founder and President Cedric Walker. "Our spectators are participators; they sing and dance, laugh and cry right along with the performers who spill out from center ring into the aisles."
The circus' ringmaster team of Shuckey Duckey and Patrice Lovely - better known as Maybelle - seeks to blow audiences away with their larger-than-life personalities, dance moves and comedy antics.
