performance & dance

Halka by Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger

Feel the thrill of Moroccan street life as 14 young acrobats and musicians recreate the sights and sounds of life in the Maghreb.

Celebrating the long tradition of street performances on Moroccan beaches and in villages, the stage is transformed from desert to crowded public square, from a call to prayer to a magical night-time dance. Acrobatic feats, visual humour and stirring music mix the traditional and modern, deep culture and the universal.

Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger have a ten-year history of travelling to prestigious theatres around the world, using their boundless energy, skill and humour to breathe new life into this centuries-old tradition.

Presented at Southbank Centre in partnership with Shubbak Festival, Crying Out Loud and Abu Dhabi Festival.
