Description

This show, completely inspired by Africa, is presented by a troop of fifty artists from around the continent (South Africa, Tanzania, Ghana, Congo, Guinea). Thwarting the traps of clichés and folklore, the show combines with freshness acrobatics, juggling and clowns numbers, and also a contortionist dressed in a frog whose performance is one of the highlights of the show. African wildlife is also mentioned during a parade in which the performers wear costumes made of rubber by a Tanzanian sculptor, giving a further touch of poetry to the show. Choreography (South African gumboots, Zulu dance) and music are obviously part of the show with an orchestra of eight musicians which covers some of the great African songs (Miriam Makeba, Youssou N'Dour, Touré Kunda and more).

José, an absent-minded pilot, crash lands in an unknown place that turns out to be Africa. Is he confronted by true hostile elements or is he simply conditioned by clichés? You will discover that once his fears are dispelled, he approaches the indigenous people who, in turn, also set aside their reservations to build a friendship with the pilot that will lead to true fraternity.
