“La Rencontre” (the encounter) it is an original, visual and dynamic show that combines acrobatics, dance and physical theatre. Love, friendship, rivalry, jealousy, seduction, support…the subject of this project is the diversity of an encounter in everyday life.
This creation is composed of interconnected tableaux / scenes. The show has an intinerant and / or static form depending on the performance space.
It’s available in different formulas between 5 and 20 minutes (with 2 performers), is suitable for indoor (public spaces) and outdoors (street) performances, can be played several times a day and has a very easy technical rider.
La Rencontre has enormous international appeal for all ages because of its universality, lack of text and current affairs topic: from schools to general public.
We can receive support for our travel expenses from WBI – Wallonie Bruxelles International or Brussels Export.
