Cirkafrika

Cradle of Humankind, Africa feeds my imagination for more than twenty five years … In 2000, I created the Phenix Circus to present new shows, constantly thinking about new adventures and about new spectacular territories to explore. This is why I wanted to offer to the young African circus an exceptional visibility. Rich of my learnings, my trips, my meetings and of intense emotions, Cirkafrika appeared to me as an evidence. It is also my most personal creation.
Alain M. Pacherie

Cirkafrika is made of 45 African artists, 12 circus scenes, various individual and collective acrobatics, juggling, aerial acrobatics and comic interludes. But also of a traditional ballet with 8 dancers and a 12-musicians orchestra, for a 2-hours unforgettable show.
There are no more animals in the Phenix Circus since 2002. However, various ways of presenting animals during the shows were tested. In Cirkafrika, animals are represented by articulated giant puppets. The audience may thus experiment the real emotions of an African savannah!
