Welcome to West Africa. Inspired by his daily life in Guinea, founder Yamoussa Bangoura’s Cirque Kalabanté transports you to a bustling marketplace exploding with vibrant color, live music, and tremendous circus talent.  

Meaning “child go-getter, ambitious, with exceptional courage” in Susu language, the Montréal-based troupe vibrates with energy, combining mind-blowing acrobatics with explosive dance and music played on traditional West African instruments.  

Acrobats flip, jump, and fly across the stage accompanied by rhythmic beats of Afro-jazz, djembe, and kora (a 21-string instrument), thrilling the audience and the troupe themselves. Mesmerizing and magical, Cirque Kalabanté leaves you feeling invigorated and alive. 

Prepare for an unforgettable journey of high-flying, jaw-dropping feats that’ll keep your whole family on the edge of their seats.
