Des bords de soi

Cie l’MRG’éeMarlène Rubinelli-Giordano

Premiered 2018

Extraordinary creatures reveal themselves in this lair on the edge of reality and the circus ring. Stemming from our imagination and their own depths, they evoke a metamorphosis, an eruption of something buried in ourselves.
Five circus artists and apparatus – Chinese pole, tightwire, aerial straps, contortion, Cyr wheel – convey these excesses through an acrobatic and choreographic experience. In this performance, the issue of a physical, artistic and musical research, Marlène Rubinelli-Giordano with an enduring childlike fantasy leads us to a perception of where our individual limits lie.
