MARATHON

Artists : Galapiat Cirque
Other show :  à préciser

“With the rage of a boxer and the stamina of a long-distance runner, Sébastien Wojdan embarks the spectator on the razor’s edge, in a show of drawn daggers. Marathon, the aptly named, superb universe of punk poetry distilled in a Circus ambiance.” 

Hervé Queille – Le Télégramme –  2 april 2013

Marathon is a circus solo, a challenge that consists in performing alone in the ring.
Running as a metaphor nurtures a need for solitude through extreme physical activity and repetitive action.
The tenacity of a man to overcome an exhausted body pushed to its utmost li- mits. Body temperature rises, the heart beat accelerates, hands start shaking. Panting for breath, fear and distress be- come manifest.
By dwelling on our childish heroic en- thusiasms, Marathon puts to the test the mutation of our dreams.

« As each new presentation of skill comes, one after another in never-ending succession, I think on the passage of time, and the series of ridiculousnesses that makes up a life.  Marathon is a sophisticated circus that doesn’t lose it’s accessible crowd-pleasing heart for a second. »
