Seven years after playing at the Citadel of Aleppo, alongside a dozen whirling dervishes, Bab Assalam reinvents the myth of the dervishes, in collaboration with Sylvain Julien, with a "whirling" concert where Sufi trance becomes circus poetry. A fragment of this work had already been proposed to Fort Barraux during the last edition of the Détours de Babel festival, but the audience have a chance here to appreciate the full extent of this homage, an ode to love, inspired by Sufi music and philosophy. This is a path that leads beyond the movement of bodies, and beyond time, to come together and spin with the planets and stars.
