Matilda Leyser

Working at the frontiers of circus, dance and physical theatre, Matilda Leyser plays with gravity and imagines airborne choreographies at the end of a cord.

A cord descends from the flies. Suspended in space, a long white silhouette moves, outlining striking images.


Two short pieces from the triptych Lifeline - Dead Point - Night Plane by Matilda Leyser, introduce us to the beauty and emotion generated by airborne choreography as it attempts to explore the solitude we are all confronted with sooner or later.


Lifeline and Dead Point are an ideal opportunity to discover an offbeat artist who invents a new theatrical language where beauty and emotion take shape in the vertical plane.
