A MAGICAL JOURNEY OF MORROCAN ANCESTRY
Halka is a Moroccan art form that exists since the mists of time. It refers to the circle that the crowd creates around street performers. Groupe acrobatique de Tanger is deeply inspired by the age-old tradition. They want to take you on magical journey to the sunset country with their collective creation Halka.
You’ll be immersed in the atmosphere and warm Moroccan colours with acrobatic feats of the 14 artists who execute distinctive Moroccan acrobatics and human pyramids, as well as enchanting songs and percussion sounds played by musicians. To tell their story, the acrobats use everyday objects like a belt made of scarves, the facha, a metal basin, the djefna, and plenty of sand. Let yourself be amazed by the overflowing energy of their multiple bodies, acrobatic and resonant, transcending geographical and cultural borders.
TOHU is proud to host a North African company for the very first time – one of the greatest contemporary circus companies of that territory.
