Taoub Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger

leave a comment »

“Like the intoxicating scent of exotic spices, Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger will transport you to a far away fantasia. The lively sights and sounds of a Moroccan bazaar fill The New Victory as this agile troupe climbs and cavorts its way through dramatic tumbling and balancing acts. Evocative staging, mesmerizing music and aerial exploits conjure illusions of majestic mountains and vast terrains. TAOUB brings to life the traditions–and the future–of Moroccan street performance, blending ancient acrobatic routines from the beaches of Tangier with contemporary technology and design. This lyrical and humorous exploration of North African culture, from the creative team behind Plan B and IJK, is full of “exuberant daring.” – The Telegraph (UK)

“They fill the stage with multiple back-flips, dizzying cartwheels, perilous human pyramids and vaulting trampoline stunts…Everyone was spellbound.” – The Guardian
