Aperçus de cirque

Aperçus de cirque is an evening of 3 or 4 extracts from contemporary circus shows aimed to the general public as well as professionals.

The Wallonia-Brussels Federation’s Service of Diffusion presents the « Propulse » festival to promote the movement of artists both in Belgium and abroad. As the Circus Arts do not benefit from specialized promotions, this is an opportunity for Circus companies to show case their productions.
Circus Art is multidisciplinary and currently thriving. There is such a wealth of talent to be discovered in the French Community of Belgium that we’ve associated ourselves with other Companies to offer some « -Aperçus de Cirque- Circus Overviews » during our friendly and original evening event.
This partnership ensures that the accessibility and the development of the circus arts keep going from strength to strength.

Acrobatics, trapeze, slacklining, acrobatic bike,music and video shows are some of the spectacular skills on display. Each one will take you into their own universe.

For the first time, the evening will be a fest of entertainment with a series of extracts from circus performances, animated by  the Fanfare Commando Fête. Circus and music invade the big tops of the Ecole de Cirque de Bruxelles for a colorful journey of discovery!

The program
Circus >> 4 excerpts of 15 minutes

LINGE SALE // Compagnie Rasoterra 
Circular acrobatics with, on or without a bicycle. It is a circle of memories that repeats indefatigably. It is an insane and sensual game, in a world about to crumble. Linge Sale opens a world of movements, both rough and naïve, where a broad pallet of emotions shows through.
STATIC // Compagnie Lorrojo 
(off)balance between circus, music and shifted humour. Static is the transitory moment of perfection that we all expect, where the public applauds, the child says “oooh!” and the artist smiles.
WASTELAND // Cirque Barbette 
White page for a lucid dream: The wasteland will be my Kingdom! Cirque Barbette continues its research around man in the city and signs here a creation on the wasteland. A  performance of slack wire supported by the air and the pleasure of playing. 
FALL // Compagnie la main à la patte 
Partner acrobatics, canned and in music. A meeting between two bodies that fit together, that can themselves, as well as unite and debate. Fall is a poetic 
fable, a jingle of gestures punctuated by a unique physical dialogue.
