I began with gymnastics, And then I discovered circus, just as physical but more creative than competitive. I began my circus training at the Lido circus school in Toulouse, France. I graduated in 2010 and specialised in vertical rope, acrobatics-dance-contortion. From then on, I alternated between theatre and circus productions, as a performer or an authoress (yes, the word does exist, suffice it to say I’m a feminist…).
In 2011, I co-founded the company Jorge et Bérénice, Cirque Vulgaire d’Anticipation
In 2012, I joined the company Les Colporteurs and their production “Le Bal des Intouchables”. In early 2014, I participated in the creation of “Oktobre” with the company Oktobre, a laureate of Circus Next 2013. Meanwhile, I began to teach myself hula-hoop for the show “Vanité(s)”created in 2017. I also wanted to make use of its burlesque potential which is inherent to my work along with my taste for interdisciplinarity!
An intimate, political and humourous circus production with three performers
Each day is like a little death
I’m losing my body
Day after day, I’m losing my acrobatic body
One day, I lost a figure
And the day after, I lost my father,
And then, I lost Corsica,
And then, I lost my connection to this land,
And to my forebears too?
An immersive performance
The spectators are invited as family guests, feeling like home! They will be at times witnesses and at times taken to task. We’ll start all over again. This is the story of a woman observing. Witnessing how affected she is by the death of her father. “I lost my Corsican identity when he died. Does this mean I don’t really belong to my family anymore? What did he pass on to me and what did he impose on me?”
Circus with a sense of closeness
Hula hoop, roller skating and acrobatic feats are performed very close to a moving audience, the spectators are being invited to enter an intimate sphere, attend a delicate and poetic performance created just for them.
Giving them the feeling of something unique, catching things invisible to other people.
The circus feat is displayed, taking on its full meaning in such an intimate atmosphere.
“Offering the spectators biscuits specially made for them, perched on rollerblades, making sure not to push nor step on their toes”, this is a playful and daily performance that carries the message.
