Born to be circus

Circo Zoé

Premiered 2018

Born to be circus is a tribute to the circus, its evocative poetry and meaningful gestures, the stage as a collective ritual, the celebration of the present moment, festive, but already tinged with nostalgia….
For Circo Zoé, circus is existing, it is their existence, conferring a deep necessity of a sense of freedom and contemplation.

Under their big top, the artists create a community composed of encounters and contrasts, love and hatred, desire and disappointment… Aerial hoop, tightwire, bicycle acrobatics and Cyr wheel intertwine on a background of original live music.
