Strach – a fear song

Théâtre d’Un Jour (T1J)

created in 2018

At the center of a tiny circus ring, three acrobats, an opera singer and a pianist decide to "declare their voice" and make themselves heard at all costs so as to overcome their fears.
Song and circus intertwine, magnifying each other, inviting the spectators to confront their own fears and venture into the unknown. Singing. Letting go. Drifting along. Accepting to lose one’s balance and finding the courage and enough strength to dare face reality, others and oneself.
A true moment of grace.
