Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger was created by Sanae El Kamouni in 2003. Her idea was to work with acrobats from Tangier and produce something new. She instigated a different way of working, by inviting European theatre makers to go to Tangier to create contemporary productions, devised with the Moroccan acrobats. The group put popular culture at the heart of everything they do, making their shows accessible to all. In all of their shows they aim to preserve and promote Moroccan acrobatics.
