Djemaa el Fna is the main square of the old medina of Marrakech where snake charmers, hand readers, tame monkeys, magicians, and various other performers display a spectacle of ancient mysterious acts. This large public UNESCO protected performance stage functions as a popular entertainment arena for the local public as well as it is a main tourist attraction. With a sense of relating collegially to the ongoing performance scene, J&K decided to intervene with an impromptu performance.
The piece is a collaboration with filmmaker Torben Longleg Simonsen and our local friend Abe.
