Les Fauves

Compagnie EA EO · France
New Circus — M/6+

“Les Fauves", "beasts" in English, is a two-part juggling show performed under a bubble tent. The tent is both an immersive work of art and a precious cocoon overflowing with juggling. A space station for the exploration of juggling.

The first part is a collection of juggling “beasts” scattered around the tent and its surroundings, open to the public as if in a zoo, museum or amusement park. On this tour of the tent, you'll find foot juggling, underwater juggling, distance juggling and trance juggling. Like wild animals, jugglers didn't choose to be here. They are driven by their deep passion for throwing and catching and can't escape. They have trained themselves to do a number that they repeat over and over again because they can't help doing over and over again what could one day be their best juggling act.

The second part is a ceremony that celebrates endurance, tirelessness and impermanence: a battle against gravity and oblivion won only during the show, under the big top and under the spotlights. But it wins anyway: all is well.
