Company 111 and Aurélien Bory for Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger (French / Moroccan)
Following the success of Chouf Ouchouf in 2011 and Taoub in 2006, renowned French director Aurélien Bory has created a new show for the astounding Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger. Azimut is inspired by an eminent 16th century Sufi thinker whose grave has become a shrine to pilgrims, and who is regarded as the patron saint of Moroccan acrobats. Azimut derives from the Arabic As-samt, meaning paths. Aurélien has embraced the motif of return at the heart of this show; the idea of the return to mother earth, a return where birth and death are intermingled.
