Between circus arts and objects theatre, Baraka is a sweet and malicious show during which two characters, bartenders not having much to do, challenge each other in absurd, aesthetic or comic games, virtuoso or keeping it simple.
In the steps of burlesque tradition, following such style pace, they deviate everyday objects from their primary purpose : tea pots fly and glasses dance, sugar cubes levitate in mechanical choreography, tea bags sway like snakes bewitched by a flutist…
Led by poetic and rhythmic Eastern music, the characters go on facing and pairing to bring the spectator at the limit of the theater of the absurd.
Like its own name, which is inspired by Moroccan dialect and whose meaning has little to do with luck but rather with a strong call to stop, the show is based on a misunderstanding between very distinct and mute characters waiting for Godot…
A call to stop… at least for a tea time
