Collective creation 2015
Based on an original idea by Aurélien PROST
Directed by Julien ATHONADY and Christian LUCAS


"  Cirque Rouages plays with balance, the fragility of the world,  the wind, poetry ...  "


"  A feeling of breathlessness with the tightrope walkers of Cirque Rouages. It's very beautiful, this tracking shot of a cinema. The acrobats with their confounding lightness and skill, play with and on the wire. A poetic moment rightly hailed by the audience.  "

... Sodade ...

Fable on an infinite thread - Creation 2015


...Every stormy evening, an old man, long exiled, approaches the seashore. With the wind caressing his face, he returns to distant memories. A waking dream of happy nostalgia, to never forget, and to continue living at all costs.

Around an infinite cable..., four bodies in balance will evolve, like the waves of a past time which return and leave unceasingly. ...Sodade..., is as well two musicians playing, singing and telling a fable at great height, a hymn to life on a unique circus structure...

" Friendship is essential for a proper functioning memory. Remembering our past and always carrying it with us, is perhaps the necessary condition to preserve, as we say, the integrity of our self. "

Milan KUNDERA, Identity
