FIQ (¡Despierta!)

Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger / Maroussia Diaz Verbèke

FIQ (¡Despierta!)

FIQ (¡Despierta!) is the most recent venture of the Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger, founded in 2003 thanks to the efforts of a woman, Sanae El Kamouni, who was determined to bring acrobatics, one of the great manifestations of Moroccan popular culture, to the contemporary language. 


This show brings in its wake all the light, energy and dynamism of fifteen talented young acrobats whose skills range from traditional and modern acrobatics to urban dance, break-dance, taekwondo and freestyle football. And just how do they combine all these acrobatic specialities? To the sound of the scratches of the well-known Moroccan DJ Key and surrounded by the visual world of Hassan Hajjaj, a well-known artist and photographer - they call him the Moroccan Andy Warhol - and author of a totally pop and colourful visual imaginary.


FIQ (¡Despierta!) is a veritable feast of light and colour, a new exhibition of these artists' extreme vitality, directed this time by the acrobat Maroussia Diaz Verbèke.


A production by the Halka Association (Paris - France) in coproduction with the Scènes du Maroc Association (Tangier - Morocco)
