To believe or not to believe? To be or not to be? To stand up or to let yourself go…

In a ceremony devoid of confessions, three men prepare themselves. For a challenge, an exploit, a chance to surpass themselves. One speaks, encourages and motivates one of the others, who falls under the spell of his words and allows himself to be manipulated. “Do you believe in me? I believe in you”. The first leads the way, the second rises to the challenge, both carry each other forward, spur each other on, attempt to scale the wall which towers over them. The third, with the help of a bass guitar and an array of machines, cloaks their endeavour in an atmospheric soundtrack, with pulsations both earthly and ethereal. Unity, submission, domination, hesitation… Circus as metaphor for the competing forces at play within otherness, the rival ‘I’s at the heart of our identity. And at the centre of it all sits a trampoline, gateway to the great leap, an invitation to fly. And to fall.
An acrobatic short piece for two trampolinists and one musician, Foi(s) 3.0 is a variation on the theme of elevation and exceeding oneself. Above and beyond its religious connotations, faith extends to trusting oneself, believing in others, and choosing a path. Whatever the ultimate goal of elevation – spiritual, emotional, artistic, sporting, professional – faith invokes images of ritual and quest. And sometimes succumbs to that which surpasses it, a form of surrender to dogma or an abandonment of the self. Foi(s) 3.0 is a subjective exploration of this idea, defined by friendship.
