World Premiere on May 22nd in Graz
Andre Hellers AFRIKA! AFRIKA! is the most successful circus show in the world. More than 180.000 spectators in Vienna saw the magic event from the Continent of Wonder; a total of more than 1 million people have already come to Europes biggest circus tent. Due to the immense success the producers Matthias Hoffmann and Andre Heller initiated a second production of AFRIKA! AFRIKA! The world premiere of this show is taking place on May 22nd, 2007 on the Messe Congress Graz area.
The new production is performed by the artists who are already a part of the large pool of master acrobats, dancers, musicians, singers and eccentrics who make up the artists family of AFRIKA! AFRIKA! The choreographer of the show is George Momboye. 120 artists from about 20 african countries present the partly acrobatica and fast and partly graceful and romantic parts of the 2,5 hour long show. The tent with a chapiteau of 26 meters is the highest tent in Europe and allows space for 2000 spectators. It is surrounded by numerous tents in Mauritanian style on Berber carpets. The numerous tents are connected to the main tent in a kind of maze.
Furthermore 1 Euro of each sold ticket - the so-called "Afrika-Euro" goes to the Foundation "Art in Africa" which was founded in cooperation with the German UNESCO commission to protect Africas culture.
Tickets: available in the Stadthalle ÖT-Center, 0316/8088-200 or on
