Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Traditional African music and dance meet modern circus in this audacious and vibrant feast for the senses. Hailing from Guinea and now based in Montréal, Kalabanté makes its Philadelphia debut with Afrique en Cirque, featuring authentic dancing and astonishing acrobatic feats set to the pulsing rhythms of djembes, koras and other native West African instruments. "A kind of daredevil circus, full of astounding leaps, rolls, and drum music," Kalabanté offers high-flying, “jaw-dropping performances” (The Georgia Straight) that will amaze the whole family.
