Afrika! Afrika! - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
AFRIKA! AFRIKA! is a magical circus adventure from the amazing continent that is currently wowing crowds in the Tented Palaces next to the O2 Arena.
Since December 2005, André Heller’s sensual discovery of Africa has fascinated more than 2 million visitors across Europe with its rhythm, energy and a joy for life that is bubbling over.
The whole of Africa’s incalculable creative and cultural richness is on show for Afrika! Afrika!, with some 120 artists from almost 20 African countries presenting the acts that make up the two and a half hour show.
Some of the acts are full of acrobatics done at high speed; others are charming and romantic.
London visitors can be swept away to the content of wonder until Summer 2008, when it will be continued in Liverpool, Birmingham and Dublin. In 2009, the show can be seen in the USA.
