Hurt me tender
(points de vue)


created in 2018

In this new big top production following Epicycle, CirkVOST has designed a scenic device that duplicates points of views in close proximity to the audience. One being very low with acrobatic figures at ground level and the other at a great height and involving airborne bodies, falling and catching themselves.
An all-out aerial performance driven by an urban tribe performing on a Korean cradle, an aerial chair, a flying trapeze… With the vibrant partnership of a musical trio resonating in the canvas cathedral and  enhancing the airborne figures with  an emotional strength of great contrasts.
