Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger return to the UK this spring with Chour Ouchouf, a show mixing contemporary performance and traditional Moroccan acrobatics.
Presented by producers Crying Out Loud, the show is a snapshot of daily life in Tangier’s cramped old quarter. The 12-strong cast move through a set that floats apart and reassembles to suggest the changes of a bewildering, exciting city. Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger is the latest incarnation of the Hammich family troupe, which dates back to 1904. For Chouf Ouchouf, they have collaborated with Swiss artists Martin Zimmerman and Dimitri de Perot.
