Cirq'ulation Locale

7 dancers, 7 actors and 7 circus performers explode the boundaries between the circus and the stage.

Cirq'ulation Locale is all about mixing and combining disciplines: these seven young circus performers use everything from juggling to dance, acrobatics and theatre in their quest to tell powerful stories, inspired by personal experiences and presented in a visceral style which puts form on a part with content. 
This particular show was totally overhauled following a bus accident involving the whole troupe in 2013. This traumatic event totally changed their perspective on creativity: the physical consequences and trauma suffered by some of the performers forced them to find new creative solutions, coming at the piece from a different angle.
All seven performers were back on stage just a few days after the accident, some of them on crutches or in wheelchairs. With those physical challenges behind them, Who goes on is now a genuine ode to life!
