Festival of contemporary circus


spectacle-festival english


31e promotion du CNAC

A repertoire reinterpretation by CNAC students directed by Denis Plassard

The circus ring is a zoo. Human specimens perform in three compartmentalised spaces where the virtuose and flamboyant choreography unfolds simultaneously.
Allocated to three different sections, the spectators can wander from one to the other in order to explore each facet of this circus/zoo (Chinese pole, rope, ground to air acrobatics…). The components are revealed progressively creating the picture of a strange society.
