Human (articulations II)

Centre national des arts du cirque

Repertoire reinterpretation 2019

Did you say humanity? By combining the circus arts and theatre, the words and the body, unclassifiable author-actor-director Christophe Huysman has invited the fourteen students of CNAC 32nd year’s promotion to reinterpret HUMAN (articulations), his extraordinary piece created in 2006 at Avignon Festival.

Mass information, lies, injustice, are the chosen themes for this tribute to those who are mistreated, humiliated. Those we have cheated, who can’t speak anymore, have nowhere to go. The tone is as humourous as it is cruel. Using a Chinese pole, beam and ladder, the circus artists call our attention to a concept in danger, that of the collective. A sparky, rejuvenating, corrosive performance.
