a performance where world-music, circus and dance seamlessly combine. The members of the ensemble and the acrobats show that these art forms, which are rooted in ancient traditions, can blend together to create a new and timeless form of art.
Directly after their first encounter several years ago, Tarek and Kami-Lynne and the members of the Lingua Franca Ensemble felt a powerful attraction to each other and a desire to collaborate arose. The ensemble wanted to give an extra dimension to their concerts by adding visual elements. Tarek and Kami-Lynne were looking for composers that could support and strengthen their acrobatic creations.
The result is a performance where the ensemble will perform work from their debut album ‘Ephemera’ which was released earlier this year. Tarek & Kami-Lynne will present various pieces making use of (aerial) acrobatics and dance, that are inspired by these compositions.

"The combination of the majestic, dashing and sometimes dazzling performance on strings and membranes of the Eastern tinted ensemble, with the ‘dance-like’ acrobatics of the duo TK Circus was a match made in heaven. The control and agility with which Kami-Lynne and her partner Tarek performed an unlikely graceful and flexible aerial ballet in slowmotion, like a sensual embodiment of the at times divine music, had an enchanting effect. At least, for those who could forget the association with the circus of yore."
