The cycle of Absurd



The cycle of Absurd Creation 2020 - for Centre National des Arts du Cirque



To speak of the absurdity of men, who seek to know their reason for being, in a world whose reason is beyond them.
An amusing, humanistic and offbeat look at the human being, who only knows what he understands.
Deployed in the three dimensions of space and a chiaroscuro universe, fourteen young aspiring circus artists take over the ring. Faced with emptiness, the unknown, in the discovery of their aptitudes or the fragility of their equilibrium, they sketch the singularities of man…and the strength he has to make his limits flutter.

At the request of the Centre National des Arts du Cirque, Raphaëlle Boitel directs the graduation show of the 32nd class.
She seizes the circular space of the circus, whether in a permanent or circus tent, to bring these young circus performers, and as many disciplines, into the physical and visual aesthetics of the company.
