The Groupe Bekkrell is founded in 2009 when Fanny Sintès left the Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique in Paris (French National Drama Academy) for the Centre National des Arts du Cirque in Châlons-en-Champagne (French National Center of Circus Arts) where she met Fanny Alvarez, Sarah Cosset and Océane Pelpel.
At first, it is a group of 4 students, 4 comrades, 4 friends, 4 acrobats, 4 gluttons, 4 women, 4 jokers, 4 curious girls, 4 silly pranksters.
Initially, it is a group fascinated by the notion of instability that nuclear physics tell us about.
It has become a collective of artists taking its name from the discoverer of natural radioactivity on uranium (and who incidentally had to share the Nobel Prize with the Curie(ous) couple!), the great Henri Becquerel.
It becomes a group that explores the limits and the points of instability.
It is certainly a chaotic and joyful terrain
It is above all an ensemble negotiating the tumults of individualities and the group
It is always about hazardous experimentations
It sometimes leads to surprising results
It is risky from time to time
It is slightly glittery
It makes you feel good
It is a show that was brought to life in Elbeuf (France) on March, 12th 2015.
