CHUTE !

What does the acrobat tell us? What does he tell us as he plunges?
This is a humorous attempt to decipher our sensations when we fall.
Chute! refocuses on the earthbound acrobat, he who when he plunges, is frightened yet experiences pleasure. Revealing what happens behind the scene and the realities of the profession of an acrobat, the emotions, the desire to fly, and to plunge.

It is an attempt to comprehend what keeps us erect. We will ask ourselves what pleasure we take from falling. Why do we laugh when someone falls? What sort of relationship does the plunging acrobat have with risk-taking? with death? With life?
We will examine the vertical and ascending representations of our society (of progress?). We will look closely at the way we organise ourselves, without relapse, in the struggle against gravity. We will scrutinise the plunging acrobat in order to understand why he generates so much fascination as well as fear. What is it that makes him human, so terribly human?

With this version, we wish to deepen the reflection on the process of falling and propose new experiences for the audience. We will take advantage of performing in theatres or stage halls to enhance the show by adding light effects or creating a more elaborate sound design for example
This version allows an extended seating capacity. The spectators are seated on four sides around the playing area in a tribune of 150 seats.

What you will see that you have not seen in CHUTE! (short version):
Amazing light effects, free divers hitting rock bottom, somersaults, a Chinese pole, a tribune, efficient medical remedies to counter a fall…

What you will see that you have seen in CHUTE! (short version):
An all-round seating arrangement, two friends, relevant scientific studies on the process of falling, plunging bodies and bodies that raise themselves, a thrilling soundtrack, an uncluttered and playful performance.
