OOups!


An original performance combining circus (acrobatics, juggling) and urban culture (dance, beat boxing)

Two traders are on the run after a misappropriation of funds… A crazy, nutty show with an unbridled rhythm, that talks about money in a humorous, musical and visual way



★ This show is really improved thanks to its international tour and its more than 75 performances made successfully!

★ Ooups! has enormous international appeal for all ages because of its universality, lack of text and current affairs topic: from schools to the general public.

★ With a light technical rider, it is available in different formats between 10 and 50 minutes, suitable for indoor and outdoor performances.

★ We are only 3 persons travelling and our set, costumes and props can be included in Company’s luggage (it doesn’t need to be freighted).

★ We also offer creative workshops in circus, dance, physical theatre ... for adults and children with public final presentation.

★ Interactive workshop - show: learning beat box techniques with a rhythmical choreography: between 10 and 30 minutes, combinable after the performance.

★ Our projects can receive support for our travel expenses from WBI-Wallonie Bruxelles International.
The Belgian and French Embassies and the French institutes and alliances have also supported us.

Press reviews in their original language

 


 


Here are the feedbacks from the children between 8 and 10 years old, which came to see us with their school, in March 2014 at GC De Kroon, Brussels:

http://gbssab3delj.blogspot.be

It was fun and cool. Everybody can see the performance because if you don't speak Dutch it's not bad because they don't talk, they do beat box and that's music.And flips, diabolo and acrobatics.
Amine

I really liked the performance because it was about money and I never saw this, it was exciting. I liked it because they played with a diabolo, beat box and money. It was fun and ridiculous at the same time.
Jihane

I thought it was perfect because they made movements. The actors have done very nice movements. There was an acrobat, beat boxing, ..It was super and it's worth a look.
