Cirque Barbette met 'Playing and playing and playing'
© Cirque Barbette

A space of nowhere. On the floor: beams, ropes, large stones and a huge white sail. In this mysterious landscape, two characters with different characters evolve. What they have in common is that they play.

They cross the space and the show as if on a journey that evolves with their proposals, their ideas and their premeditated or impulsive actions. Their games are sometimes solitary and sometimes together, they are sometimes fine acrobatics, sometimes raw throws.

The journey is built with the objects that accompany and illustrate the imaginations of our two characters. Here and there, pieces of wood become a boat or a mountain peak, stones start to fly, a storm starts under a bench, Super Mario Bros jumps from chimneys and animals appear... Here, everything is possible!
