Performance group Galumpha to headline vacation week entertainment at Sugarloaf

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (Feb. 3, 2012) – Galumpha, the one-of-a-kind performance group featuring stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy, and inventive choreography will perform in Sugarloaf’s King Pine Room on Tuesday, February 21.


The group will be part of Sugarloaf’s family entertainment during February Vacation Week, February 19-25.


Formed in 2002 by Andy Horowitz and Greg O'Brien, Galumpha delivers a fast-paced, athletic brand of movement, distinctive for its ingenuity. Highlights include "Velcro" as seen on The Late Show with David Letterman, Crook and Chase (TNN) and the 2002 MDA Jerry Lewis Telethon, and "Clackers," seen on MTV, Showtime, A & E, Just for Laughs in Montreal, and by over one billion television viewers around the globe. Other pieces feature experiments in human architecture set to music by Rachmaninov, Mahler and the virtuoso Czech band Jablkon, making for an exceptionally entertaining program.


The three performers create a sensory feast of images ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, drawn together into a seamless whole, consistently bringing audiences to their feet. Galumpha is a triumphant mix of art and entertainment, offering world-class, award winning choreography (Edinburgh Festival Critics, Choice Award, Moers International Comedy Arts Prize) that is equally at home on the concert stage, at a comedy club or at an outdoor festival.


Tickets are just $7 per person in advance, or $10 at the door. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Guest Services counter in the Base Lodge.
