Collectif Petit Travers

A vivid, joyous riot of (im)balance, accidents, flight, juggling, aerial suspension and more.

Two jugglers and a trapeze dancer join forces in a hedonistic performance resolutely focused on playfulness, irony and pure pleasure. This is a choreographic poem in motion, dedicated to movement, the circus, dance and new forms of theatrical presentation.
The trio of performers blend humour, dance and situational comedy to create a thoroughly comical, tender, and mischievous artistic experience.
Juggling provides the jumping off point for an original visual exploration packed with ambiguity and imbalance, seemingly derailed by a series of accidents which are actually an essential part of the narrative!
A symphony of physical and poetic manipulation with striking results.
