by Camille Boitel
Modern circus world hit
Family event | Age: 6+
Arts accessibility services: Audio Description
A much-toured classic on the European circuit, L’Immédiat is a unique project that fuses physical theatre, performance and circus. Often compared to Buster Keaton, Camille Boitel is joined by six performers to surprise audiences with a riotous reflection of modern times that is catapulted into reality by breathtaking physical skills, surrealist imagery, apocalyptic optimism and chaotic, collapsing set.
|About "L’Immédiat" |
In the award-winning L’Immédiat by contemporary circus performer and stage virtuoso Camille Boitel, nothing is what it seems. A stage packed full of clutter; furniture, cardboard boxes, and ladders serves as a playground for performers to charge through, under and over, causing pieces of the junkyard-set to cave in around them. Chaos builds. A woman comes home and everything falls over. She hangs up her coat and the rack collapses, puts her bag on a table but its legs have been sawn through. Disaster continues to spread at a frenetic speed as the 7 young artists use their formidable physical abilities and comedy timing to defy the ruthless tsunami of destabilizing forces.
