Afrique en Cirque
The definitive circus tribute to African culture is set to shake The Civic with the sounds of Afro-jazz and kora alongside feats of gravity-defying acrobatics.
Inspired by daily life in Guinea, Afrique en Cirque transports the beauty, youth and artistry of Africa to the big stage. It’s an irrepressible, heart-filled spectacle for all ages that’s spread like wildfire – and regularly sold-out – around the world.
With a swagger that’s genuinely infectious, these charismatic performers encourage participation and draw energy from the audience – a huge part of the show’s appeal – while getting you to groove to pulsating percussion and dance, gasp at impossible human pyramids, laugh at inventive comic skits, and be gobsmacked at the outrageous talents of star contortionist, Mohamed Ben Sylla.
