Extrêmités is about physical balance, as well as balance of power, and our mutual dependence of each other. French balance equilibrists take the stage with wonderfully snappy humour. The three artists keep the audience on edge. With a number of gas tubes and a pile of planks, they build constructions that shouldn’t be possible to balance on. The slightest movement and the balance is upset. Nevertheless, they succeed (hopefully during this performance as well). Here the game is total concentration, meticulous cooperation, challenging the other with a twinkle in the eye. With the light push of a board, conditions change and the one who was in perfect balance is suddenly completely in the grip of the other.
Cirque Inextremiste is based in the French Vendée department and has been touring extensively around Europe since 2014.
In Croûte, the French juggler Guillaume Martinet creates a site-specific performance; with body language and balls something abstract is conveyed in interaction with the audience. The company has presented juggling humor in more than 700 performances on five continents. With Croûte, Martinet returns to a minimalist concept to get closer to the audience and communicate his passion: throwing and catching things, joking and exposing contrasts.
Twelve years ago, Guillaume Martinet founded Compagnie DeFracto with the ambition to create expressive, demanding and fun juggling. For over ten years he has toured the world in the company´s hit shows, and is consideder a pioneer in experimental juggling combined with physical comedy.
