The Port Theatre, July 5 @ 7:30pm The Sun and the Moon

The Port Theatre, July 7 @ 7:30pm Kalabanté: Won’Ma Afrique

"Won'Ma Afrique", meaning "our Africa" in the Schmidt language, is adapted from Kalabanté's "Africa in the Circus" performance for the Montreal Council of the Arts tour of 2017-2018 -- symbolizing the strength, agility and the joy of living of african youth. Amazing acrobats, along with their musicians, run their authentic choreographies on the frantic rhythms of djembes from Guinea.

This show radiates the diversity of African traditional arts combined with the virtuosity of the North American modern circus performance.
