Circus Baobab

The first africa acrobatic circus created in 1998 in Guinea-Conakry a country in West Africa. With some help from the late great Pierot Bidon from Archaos fame. A circus road movie from an amazing team of acrobats and circus folk traveling through Africa with all that entails. Building their stage and flying trapeze rig from tree trunks, using old truck tires for mini tramps, high energy drumming, dance and acrobatics. Awesome music, awesome experiences and awesome reactions from the crowds as they drive their trucks through village streets and fill arenas.
Grass roots circus for the people. A phenomenon that changes peoples lives.
