African FootPrint Opening in New Orleans Nov. 1

Enjoyed by over 250 million viewers around the world, (except apparently Nicholas Sarkozy) South Africa ’s longest-running show is finally coming to the North America.

AFRICAN FOOTPRINT will kick off its North American tour at ‘Contemporary Arts Center" in New Orleans on November 1, marking the city’s first major theatrical event since Hurricane Katrina.

Academy Award-winning star of stage and screen Louis Gossett Jr., an avid supporter of the production, will host the gala premiere, and all following New Orleans performances. The tour, presented by Corey Ross, will continue through the Spring of 2008, with stints in a variety of U.S. and Canadian cities.

AFRICAN FOOTPRINT tells the vibrant and diverse history of South Africa through a breathtaking blend of Afro- and Euro-centric music and dance. A cast of 30 energetic performers has created a show so exciting and entertaining that critics have dubbed AFRICAN FOOTPRINT “The Riverdance of South Africa ”.

Since its splashy conception, AFRICAN FOOTPRINT has played for seven years in South Africa , 2½ years touring Europe, as well as numerous engagements throughout Australia , China , Israel and India . The show has been seen by over 250 million audience members, including luminaries such as Bill Clinton, HRH Prince Charles and Nelson Mandela
