CHOREOGRAPHIC CIRCUS WITH 1500 ROOF TILES

A group of mysterious men dressed in long coats guide us into a deserted cinematic landscape in between run-down industrial buildings at the edge of the city. Only lit by a few lamps, they take us through the twilight to a place covered by a huge amount of tiles, all laid out like a carpet and shaped like urban sculptures.

With ritual, poetic dance sessions, the dark-clad men lure us in a nonchalant manner until they suddenly burst into fiery, acrobatic choreographies, where the tiles fly all over the place. They juggle them, throw them to the ground and trample them with their feet until they break into a thousand pieces.

In this obscure, magical universe, clearly inspired by the iconic Polish director Kantor, logic and story has been  set aside in favour of mood, energy and presence. With a mix of urban new circus and decadent dance, the company creates an exceptionally beautiful performance in the middle of the industrial wasteland.
