CINÉ CIRCO *

Artists : Tomas Kaulen, Circo Hechizo (Chili)
Other show : Circo de A'Onde

Cine Circo challenges the memory of a digitalising world, reviving the historical analogies between circus and film through an eccentric character, now an usher, then a popcorn seller and a projectionist, a mite clumsy and slightly disorganised. Plus a projector, a real one, a 16mm. An almost magical device inviting us to follow the evolution of cinema, constructing and deconstructing images. Tomas Kaulen rejuvenates the early stage of cinema, refering to emblematic film directors who have common forebears with clowns (Chaplin, Keaton…).

Cine Circo is a multiple-sections project:
> the show
> workshops: including a workshop "creating on Celluloid"
> cinema: a screening time, within the set space turned into a touring cinema, to be scheduled in close relationship with the area or the organiser of the event
> news / advertisement: a participative audiovisual creation included in the show and renewed for each new location.
