White. Entirely white. At an immaculate exhibit, a plume of colour is promptly cleaned up. All are delighted to return the most absurd monochrome perfection. Little by little, something seems off, things go haywire. The visitors gradually cross into another world: the set turns inside out. Colour appears once again, but now it is indelible. Amused, troubled, energized – will it absorb them?
Under the leadership of stage director Olivier Lépine, seven world-class circus artists and a multi-instrumentalist take you to the outer edges of art. Breathtaking acrobatics and enticing live music, let yourself be carried away by a bewilderingly unusual exhibit.
Machine de Cirque's new show is brimming with breathtaking feats - Le Soleil
