À brûle-pourpoint
Jean-Baptiste André et Julia Christ
(France)
Live circus encounter on the grass
Circus-Dance
From the age of 8

Jean-Baptiste André and Julia Christ continue hot on the heels of the intensity and complicity of their duo Pleurage et scintillement (2013) in this physically-challenging short-form impromptu piece with minimal staging for public space. The two circus artists and dancers perform a succession of movements in a duet of lovers or friends. The finely-tuned composition of these partners in balance requires a remarkable acrobatic exploration of movement and space.
