Who are Amoukanama?

Amoukanama consists of acrobats from Guinea and Belgium, who are trying to lessen the gap between Europe and Africa through their circus performances. The group also produces its own international shows and is currently working on a new creative project FA, both for public space (2022) and theaters (2023).

The group's acrobatic acts include music, somersaults, and even contortion. The official website of Amoukanama reads, “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.” The group's members include Alseny Sacko, Ballamoussa Bangoura, Facinet Camara, and Nathalie Vandenabeele among others.
  
Talking about an outstanding aspect of the group, the official website states, “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.”
