"PANDAX"

2021 Creation - Under a Tent

It's the story of 5 brothers who already know each other… But they meet for the very first time !

 

A car, a Fiant Panda to be accurate. 5 men and half.

 

They don't have a lot in common, but one particular thing unites them. It's not their birth place, or their job. Neither their favourite colour nor what they ate the day before, nor their interests, nor their mother. What binds them is their father.

 

Indeed, they are 5 brothers, but don't share the same mother. Actually, only Simon & Simon know each other. Not so surprising since they are twins.

The father is in the car too, travelling in an urn.

 

That's the reason for their trip. They come straight from the crematorium, with daddy freshly burnt and put in a box.

Why the tent ?

 

The tent is an aesthetic, scenographic and artistic object as a whole. It's a dream carrier and its presence is a powerful act. Setting down with a tent in the heart of the city allows to put forward an artistic stand in a territory. A stand that allows to take the time to build and live projects. A stand that eases meetings with locals.

 

The tent for its circular stage. For its relationship and proximity with the audience. To be as close as possible to the sensations transmitted and emitted. The tent is a vector of emotion in itself, which takes on its full dimension when it is inhabited by artists and the audience.

 

 It is also a way for Cirque la Compagnie to have the workspace that perfectly matches it. Which meets the technical requirements that circus disciplines demand. And which also forces a unique way of life: roaming, with the collective work it implies.

 

 The place of the circus tradition is important for Cirque la Compagnie. The big top represents a part of the history of the circus and remains a very representative element of this art. We are a so-called “new circus” company and our shows offer modern forms of performance. We want to participate in placing the big top and the circus in the present and the future.

 

 We wish to defend the presence of tents in the heart of the public space. This approach feels very important to us in a moribund social and political context.
