PRESENTATION

MAX Award 2017 (id. Tony or Olivier Award) as Outstanding New Show

Special Prize of the Jury at Zirkolika Catalonia Awards 2016

” The idea behind this creation is to plunge the audience into a world that is theirs, familiar, a universe made up of the fragments of life lived by all, and to share this human experience together. “

Synopsis

A few smallish platforms, a trampoline, a teeter board and four men…

Four acrobats watch each other, gauge, run into, carry, throw each other and sweep us along in their metaphoric farandole: meetings, exploits, mistakes, power games, seductions, manipulations, an “intarsio” made up of fragments of life, a glimpse into the kaleidoscope of human relationships.

A circus in constant movement, strong, poetic, funny and heart-warming, a moment which inspires real tenderness for the strange beast that is the human being.
