«In a traditional circus, the “avant-courrier” sets up the circus settlement, orders the food, the litter for the animals and puts up the posters. The convoy follows.»

L’Avant Courrier is an organisation that was founded in January 2014. Its purpose is to provide back-up in terms of production and touring management for contemporary circus shows, taking into account the diversity of styles and aesthetics, at all levels, local, national and international.

L’Avant Courrier perceives itself as a close partner of the artistic teams in the creation and implementation of their productions, taking into consideration their individual needs and concerns. Each collaboration is thus unique.

The choice of a separate structure to that of the artists allows pooling of tools, know-how and networks. Backing up the artistic teams is also a way of opening new perspectives and taking a global view necessary in the daily management of a company.

Behind the scenes of L’Avant Courrier, Nolwenn MANAC’H, Louise-Michèle YOU, Fanny PEZZUTTI and Elsa LEMOINE, four girls whose wish is to consider production and touring management as a collaborative effort.

Taking the necessary time to integrate these professions in a vaster reflection of artistic and cultural policies.
