Acrobacy and dance duo based on the evolution of a couple... The meeting, the passion, the heartbreaks, the birth of a child... Everything passes (or goes away) and returns... on the thread of a rope that is tied and unravels in sculpture... but with a softness and a tenderness that will not leave anyone indifferent... or unharmed.

This visual, poetic show without text, has been played more than 120 times, charming spectators in more than 15 countries around the world. (eg.Brazil, Mali, Morocco, Europe)

Vania D'Angelo or Ellen Cobbaert (dancer, acrobat)
Kevin Troussart (acrobat, dancer, juggler)
Jordi L. Vidal (choreographer, stage director and project leader)
Christophe Lecoq (sound and lights)
Nicolas Simon (video)

Street version (20 minutes, 2 times a day) and indoor version (1 hour) adaptable to outdoors and indoors. The duration of the versions can vary according to the needs of the program.

It has a light technical rider that can be easily adapted to different spaces.

Thanks to its multidisciplinary nature it can be part of a street theatre, circus, festival or dance program, for any kind of audience or school.

Its approach allows introducing the combination of dance and circus in an accessible way to a wide audience sometimes not used to it.
