Overview

Groupe Arcobatique de Tanger: Halka by Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger

There is a long tradition of acrobats performing on Moroccan beaches and in village squares, creating spectacles for the public with astounding human pyramids, cartwheels and somersaults, always accompanied by music and song.

For the past 10 years the highly skilled acrobats of Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger have travelled the world with their contemporary shows. Using powerful and unique physical skills, they have breathed new life into this popular practice.

In Halka, the 14 young acrobats and musicians create an energetic spectacle which hums with the sights and sounds of Moroccan street life. Acrobatic tricks and stirring music mix the world of old traditions, with exuberant parties and modern, visual humour to paint a vivid picture of life in the Maghreb today. By turns the stage is transformed into the middle of the desert, to a crowded public square, a magical night-time dance and by a crier calling the faithful to prayer.

Halka is an invitation to let yourself be captivated by this vision of communal life captured by the boundless energy and humour of these incredible acrobats.

Supported by Amal (a Saïd Foundation programme)
