La Volte Cirque
La Volte is a circus company that was created in 2018 by Matthieu Gary and Sidney Pin. In 2016, in collaboration with Collectif Porte27 they produced the show Chute! which has been touring since. Following that, the two associates moved to Nantes in order to investigate the art of acrobatics through the production of shows / lectures, performance art as well as the organisation of workshops, for non-professional audiences for example.
A lecture on the somersault. Faire un tour sur soi-même is a very personal investigation about movement.
A one-man show halfway between an autobiographical account of twenty years of acrobatic practice and a lecture i.e. the accumulation of observations, images and philosophical, sociological and historical reading.
What is a somersault? What is it for? Where to see somersaults? How long have we been performing somersaults? These are some of the questions I will try to answer.
-> Faire un tour sur soi-même has won Artcena’s prize for the production of playwriting 2022 (Aide nationale à la création de textes dramatiques 2022).
