Les hauts plateaux

Mathurin Bolze

Ages 10 and up

Les hauts plateaux is a circus show highlighting the poetry of corporeal expression and equilibrium: a virtuoso work for the stage that speaks of our human fragility and our relationship to the world.

A master of contemporary circus arts, Mathurin Bolze creates a resonance between the art of the circus and the consciousness of ruins. Trampolines, inclined platforms, moving floors and ladders design a labyrinthian space, in constant metamorphosis, in which bodies transform, take flight, climb and rebound, confronted by images of a world ever beautiful but ever so fragile. On a sound creation by Camel Zekri and Jérôme Fèvre, Les hauts plateaux seeks to construct in the face of destruction, to find meaning and beauty, and achieve the acrobatic heights where skill attains pure poetry – all the while thumbing its nose at the times, in a pure moment of weightless grace.
