Barka by Girovago with Original Music by Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra

February 25, 2025 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

$20 – $40

The Trail & District Arts Council presents BARKA by Girovago, on Tuesday, February 25 at 7:30 pm, as part of the Performing Arts Trail series in The Bailey Theatre. A daring mix of circus, live music and dance, this is a show full of delirious energy and a richness of sound, visual and sensory experiences.

The show features 11 artists from Montreal in a celebration of life, where original music by Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra fuses Afro-Colombian percussion with Balkan melodies, dance and circus, including Cyr wheel, contortions, balance, juggling and uni-cycle.

Using the boat as a metaphor for humanity, the show explores how we must work together, no matter our differences, to reach our dreams, in a festive chaos that calls for hope.

Watch the video here. Please note that the performance in The Bailey Theatre will not include the Chinese pole or aerials.

“Barka is a multidisciplinary show mixing dance, circus art and musical performances that fuse the effervescent sound of gypsy brass bands with Afro-Colombian percussion.” Ici Radio-Canada
