We were so happy to participate in the festival City of Wings in Ypres last weekend.
It was very cold to perform, but the warmth of the public and the organisation made it an amazing experience.

Wil je graag eens reizen van Senegal, naar Guinee, naar Mali, over de Filippijnen terug naar Colombia?
We are happy to announce that we will be participating in the Gala of Ingelmunster 2019!
Little steps, but always with a clear vision and direction where we want to go!
Hope to see you there too!
Every day on a lost beach in a forgotten country, young talented kids are training to be an acrobat.
We fall, eat sand, endure pain… but always go home with a feeling of hope…
What is your passion in life?
First of all, we want to build a professional circus school in Conakry, Guinea. To the model of the National Circus School in Montreal, we want to offer a 3 year program for students. This program aims to offer the students a possibility to grow into a professional circus artist with the space to develop their own personality and unique talents.
A big element of Amoukanama is the exchange between people. We work with people with different world views, cultures, languages, religions etc. and strive to find common ground among them. Circus is a great tool to create connection despite differences. It speaks with values of trust through movement of the body and mind.
Amoukanama also strives to produce their own shows. We are working both in Europe and Africa. In Belgium, we have a group of artists to perform on festivals, events, circus cabarets etc. There are several possibilities to perform. See further which acts could bring life to your festival! In Guinea, we encourage our friends to keep working as we want to create shows with the coming circusschool as well. Currently, we aim to create a show with Guinean and Belgian artists, inspired by the theme of dreams, courage, freedom and the search for connection in a world that separates things in boxes…
We not only have a lot of acrobats, but also amazing musicians! As such, the band of Amoukanama, can give concerts in your neighbourhood or on your event. There is something to be said of dancing on African beats, freeing your mind and soul on the rhythms of the Earth!
Amoukanama has been founded in the hearts of many people, especially the young acrobats of Matam Conakry, Guinea. It was them who have made the seeds for this project as it is their hard work and courage who led to the origin of the acrobatics in Guinea. however, there are a few who are currently leading the project to its realization… Let us show you a little video of who the acrobats are…
