Circus Baobab

Formed in 1998 when Archaos’ Pierrot Bidon travelled to Guinea to create sub-Saharan Africa’s first aerial acrobatics troupe with the filmmaker Laurent Chevalier, Circus Baobab arrive in London in 2003 to perform at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. With performers recruited from Guinean ground acrobatics troupes and the country’s National Ballet, Circus Baobab run acrobatics up to the frenetic pace of live African drumming.
