Creation 2009 – 2014
Theatre Show (frontal)
Duration : 55 minutes – For all ages

Circus is their everyday life, they know the codes and the language…more or less…sometimes they get lost between the dressing rooms and the stage. It’s there backstage, that the actors cross paths, wait, observe, their imagination on stand-by…bodies and objects come to life, creating a makebelieve world which entices you on stage. The unforeseeable imposes, fantasy emerges and the circus performers extricate themselves from these situations to get back into the driving line of the show.

One hour under the lights, a life on stage…

“Coulisses” is above all a poetic and sincere tribute to a profession, an activity, a passion, a way of life…
