Acrobatics is a gem in Morocco’s cultural heritage, known for its pyramids and circular figures. The Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger, set up over a decade ago by trad acrobats with a modern outlook, is now returning to its roots: the show’s Arabic title means “circular festive show”. The twelve performers express their world’s contradictions – sacred/profane, spectacular/invisible, authentic/borrowed. They also share their music, in the form of declaimed poetry, singing and percussion.
