Appuie-toi sur moi

Cirquons Flex

Premiered 2019

In an octagonal ring with a Chinese pole in its center, the founding duo of Cirquons Flex company from Reunion Island propose a circus fairy tale in the form of a theatrical and physical confidence portraying an improbable encounter between two people.

We don’t really know who they are or where they come from. In an intimate performance, acrobatics, the physical and theatrical postures of their bodies resonate with storytelling, embarking the spectators in a subtle and imaginary journey in time and space.
