A fullblown “Fantassia” north by the Sahara


The Ministry of Art & Jump is preparing a “Fantassia”, the first ever to be performed north by the Sahara and in the west. A Fantassia is a sort of “gunpowder play” usually performed by 4000-5000 horsemen. The men charge their horses back and forth on a huge place and firing their rifles in the air at the end of the charge attack and rear the horses. All very spectacular, but also a way of judging and comparing the different horses.


The Fantassia is a gathering of tribesmen and are performed, among other places, in Marrakesh.
