PART OF BELFAST INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL

Celui Qui Tombe (He Who Falls)

Thu 19 Oct - Fri 20 Oct 2017

Dance

A perilous gravity defying spectacle

A 2016 Olivier Award Nominee, this thrilling circus-influenced physical theatre piece features six performers on a dramatic tilting stage, appearing to defy the laws of gravity. When the imposing, suspended podium begins to spin, pivot, swing and elevate, the only way to withstand its forces is through agile movement. Faced by such instability, bodies lean, climb, hang and fall in this perilous dance of survival.

A French artist equally dedicated to the circus arts and contemporary dance, Yoann Bourgeois has long been fascinated by ideas of weightlessness and the physics of suspension.  For this ingenious show, he challenges performers from both disciplines to meet the physical demands of his intriguing staging, each scenario choreographed to rousing tracks from Beethoven and Frank Sinatra.

‘Yoann Bourgeois creates performances that are exquisite, with an intense poetry, and impossible to forget' Le Figaro

‘A poetic creation … it’s impossible not to fall for its charm’ Time Out Paris

Presented by Compagnie Yoann Bourgeois and supported by Institut Français du Royaume Uni as part of its En Scène! Programme.
