Cirque Trottola (FR)


Two characters arrive from somewhere else, seeking light. After experiencing the glimmer of depths, they are pursuing the blaze of summits. Using their bare or altered instruments, Thomas Barrière and Bastien Pelenc are the climbing partners of Titoune and Bonaventure Gacon.

The Trottola touch is astonishing and singular, riddled with prodigious feats (flying trapeze, acrobatic stunts…) and trivial, intangible minutiae. These fleeting moments - an imitation, a stunned expression or a slouched back - are details the duo paints into their pointillist landscape of the human condition.

In Campana, the bell rings. Time flies, there’s no escape…

Space is limited. Get a pass on the day of the show at the information stand.
