« In this performance, they reappropriate the concepts of the unstable universe and organized haphazardness. Their nuclear force? The script, corde lisse, hand to hand and acrobatics on the teeterboard. They invest the space and their apparatus composing a modified universe by redefining the rules and operating processes, and using this experimention as a nex way of apprehending otherwise the power of the circus arts. » N.Yokel – La Terrasse – May 2015

At the beginning there was their encounter, in 2009, at the CNAC (National Center of Circus Arts, France). Dazzling and exhilarating. This encounter generated a small tentacular production of 20 minutes very much to the taste of our compeers and which propelled them 4 years later into the wonderful meanderings of collective creation. And so here we are. Effet Bekkrell sees the day.
It is about,
On the subsurface a strange fascination for radioactivity or what causes instability in matter and in relationships.
On the surface, cables, strings, ropes, a board, four women and a lot of smoke,
Delving deeply, they make serious yet whimsical encounters. After numerous attempts, they take a stance for perpetually changing lifestyles, precarious but precious.
And they slide from steady to unsteady states, from clashes to negociations, from utopias to disillusions…
During 1 hr…

« The show ends. The audience erupt in applause. A punch of emotion smacks me in the gut. The power caught up in this hour of high octane clowning, body-rocking, strength and struggle is released, with a glint of water in my eyes. Effet Bekkrell is my kind of feminism. »

« Beholden to no-one, the four finally create a self-propelled life-raft, and lift themselves away from the ground singing Tom Waits. It’s hopeful. It’s unapologetic. It’s glorious. The world needs more of this unabashed womanhood on its stages. That’s when the tears come.»
