I've been to other similar shows such as cirque du soleil but I've never been so impressed by a performance. The show made me laugh and cry and shriek in fear for the performers. They were brilliant in their skill and storytelling. Everyone should go!

the show begins at 7PM. As there are no reserved seat make sure you arrive earlier,then you will have time to discover our campus. The show tonight is "tchamleak". Looking forward to welcoming you tonight.
