I have watched for the first time a few years ago this amazing Cirkafrika, an African circus on a French channel.
First of all, I would like to share with you a snippet of their upcoming show as well as information about its storyline, artists, tour dates, etc…
What is Cirkafrika?
Cirkafrika is an African based circus employing 50 artists across Africa, namely:
- acrobatic balancers,
- gumboots, hoops, bouncing balls artists,
- foot jugglers.
They mainly tour in France. Similarly to Le Cirque du Soleil’s concept, this circus doesn’t make use of animals.
Now, what is the current show’s theme?
This year, the show tells the story of a small gifted monkey going for an adventurous trip to the vast plains of China. He meets many monsters ready to eat him to obtain 10 000 life years. But it’s without counting on the superpowers of the small animal, at times funny, at times powerful and at times crafty. The monkeys’ king is the widely known story told to Chinese children.
Cirkafrika is currently touring in main cities in France from 3rd to 11th February 2018. You can watch a video teaser for this year’s show here:
