Lucas Struna & Antoine Herniotte (FR)

Dance / Circus

Comment j’ai tenté le ciel (Reaching For The Sky) tells the tale of an individual journeying to find physical and spiritual balance. The musical score attempts to awaken the senses to intangible energy, to the nuances in air density, to geoelectric or geomagnetic fields that propel movement.

Nested in the middle of the space is an Indian Pole, called Mallakhamb. No shrouds or ropes, nothing to hold on to. The pole embodies an energy field, an « axis mundi » that is shortened or lengthened by the man climbing it, dominating it, all while narrowly escaping the clutches of death.
