The ‘UniverSoul Circus,’ a captivating blend of entertainment and emotion that has mesmerized audiences in over 50 cities across the United States, including Korea and around 30 other countries since its inception in Atlanta in 1994, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a special invitation to the Korean community. For four weeks starting from March 14, the circus is showcasing a thrilling mix of laughter and excitement at the Gwinnett Place Mall in Duluth, at the heart of Atlanta’s Korean town.

Founded by Atlanta’s own Cedric Walker, the UniverSoul Circus brings together entertainers from Asia, Latin America, Africa, and beyond, offering a family-friendly performance that spans cultures and continents. Highlights of the show include high-wire acts by artists from Central Africa’s Gabon and South America’s Colombia, a Caribbean Diaspora Carnival woven by Caribbean artists, and Russian swing flying acrobatics by performers from Eastern Europe’s Belarus and West Africa’s Guinea.

The circus prioritizes diversity and a family-oriented atmosphere, providing Asian audiences, including Koreans, with an environment filled with laughter and emotional moments. Special features such as beach balls bouncing over the audience, spotlighting that turns spectators into stars, and a ‘Kid’s Dance’ time designed for children, ensure a memorable experience for all.

This year’s performances are set in a newly expanded purple and yellow tent, with new seating and state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, prepared by performers representing five continents and dozens of countries to showcase their world-class talents. New acts include a unique and rare ‘Flying Trapeze Act’ with 18 performers flying through the air in complex patterns, a ‘Double Vision’ act from the Dominican Republic, a new ballerina act dancing on shoulders, and a dynamic Cuban/Caribbean-themed roller skating circus.
