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 while getting you to groove to pulsating percussion and dance, gasp at impossible human pyramids and laugh at inventive comic skits.
