De Doelen
Willem Burger hal

Sat may 4th



The country is literally the breeding ground for this playful, fascinating circus performance. SenCirk is the first professional circus company in Senegal, which they proudly convey in their performances.

For the production 'Ancrage' ('anchoring'), Modou Fata Touré and his partner Ibrahima Camara experimented with natural materials from their native country. With these materials (mainly straw, earth and wood) they made completely new instruments and techniques and thus created a new face of the contemporary African circus.

Far from the traditional codes of the African circus and yet anchored in their origins. Expect poetic acrobatics, exciting balancing acts and playful object manipulation.
