THE SHEEP CAROUSEL

Company of Irque and Fien (Belgium)
POETIC CIRCUS SHOW
9:30 p.m. (60′) – In front of “La Manare”

Circus of the present moment: A broom for a trapeze, a piano-acrobat countless sheep, a strange frigate… A body-tent, a thought woven with stars. The track is revealed… Thousands of sheep descend it. The carrousel des Moutons is seeing with your eyes wide closed, rolling around in the dark night so as not to be awake any longer. Dirque and Fien in wonderland and the impossible becomes real. It’s a show that knots the time of a silky sheet, with the rebound of a ball. This is the spontaneity of street theatre. It is the power of the circus, returned to its essence…

A tall, slender young man, with curling locks and a mischievous air, arrives flanked by a mustachioed man who is a little chubby and much older. They set up a huge tripod from which hangs a long smooth rope. And while the eldest improvises on the accordion a song as light as air, the young boy climbs the rope to caress the stars. Defying mocking rhymes and weightlessness, he pulls off incredible acrobatics. Beyond the feat, it is the grace and the poetic sweetness of the performance that catches our gaze to the clouds.
