Today we’re sharing a short film featuring a show called Halka which we presented in The Quays Theatre in July 2019 – which feels like a million years ago now!
The show is performed by a company called Acrobatique de Tanger and we presented the show in collaboration with Shubbak – a biennial festival which celebrates contemporary Arab culture.
The bulk of our programme reflects the Western traditions we’re so familiar with – and its always exciting to see new work from a totally different culture.
It was amazing to welcome this company to Salford and they led a workshop for local young people before the show. Halka is joyous and full of fun – visually stunning and physically impressive. I hope you enjoy it.
