Clown et cirque

In this wonderful circus show, two clowns live their lives in a fantastical world, constructed by the grace of their movements. A physical and poetic creation, in which virtuosity rivals with emotion and laughter with metaphysics.

With the look of a princess, she has the stuff of a leader and the desires of a queen. As for him, he conceals beneath his clumsiness an unsuspected grace, as her dreamy, cunning companion. He carries, she vaults, she falls, he catches her. They chase flies like others chose windmills. As inseparable accomplices, their naïve games lead them onto slippery terrains, on which their true nature as clowns is revealed. 

The point of view of the clown 
Directed by Christophe Guétat, whose artistic research has been influenced by clowns and the burlesque, and with music by Marek Hunhap, this show by the Compagnie 126 approaches the world and the questions that agitate it from the point of view of the clown, that eternal misfit. Territory, power, union and dependency are other themes that are dealt with, born from the relationship between the two clowns who are Gwenaëlle Traonouez and Vincent Bonnefoi-Chalmels, and who transform the beach and its castles into a field of experience, simplicity and laughter. But this couple of clowns is also a couple of acrobatic stunts, which, more than any technical demonstration, places its figures at the service of a discourse. Going so far as to influence considerably the writing of this work, in its relationship with the body, and relations with others, or with risk.
