Although they are practiced in public spaces, the „Castells“ are more an experience of community for the tower‘s participants than an acrobatic performance for the public. In the case of the „Fakir Show“, the opposite is true. Mass tourism reproduces and sells the images of supposedly authentic local practices. It is off-season at the Regency Hotel Monastir in Tunisia, a week after the thwarted attempted suicide bomb attack on the street opposite. When we set up our camera in front of the stage of the „Fakir Show“, we are the only guests. The eight-person team of entertainers greets us with enthusiasm. Not even the disclosure that our interest in the show was of purely artistic nature could spare us from being drawn in from the audience. Luckily, the camera was already turned off.
