Three elements. Two acrobats on a chinese pole. And it. The invisible one who is everywhere in the air and yet missing in Jesse’s body. The infinitely small that transforms, grows and makes us heavier. The oxygen takes form and becomes concrete.
Discovering ourselves, learning to help each other and above all else, learning to ask for help. Have you ever helped anyone to the point of losing yourself?
What are the limits to your readiness to help? How can someone maintain their self-esteem, their autonomy and their integrity? What lesson can be learned from this imposed insignificance?
Is it possible to maintain one’s own identity once you’ve become responsible for the future and survival of someone? Is it healthy to diminish our own needs in favour of doing good? This work is based on our own realities. Our being. Our sharing. A moment where we allow human beings to be human.

COMPANY

ADM vzw [Be]

JESSE HUYGH
Despite being diagnosed at 12 years of age with cystic fibrosis, Jesse has always been active: national level gymnastics, judo, swimming, and circus left him with little time to spare for other hobbies.
He graduated from ESAC (Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque) in Brussels, in 2011, specialised in chinese pole, straps, floor acrobatics and partner acrobatics. Since then he worked for numerous large companies all around the world, such as Cirque Eloize, NoFitState Circus, Casus, as well as on personal projects, solos, duos. Since 2016 he is a founding member of Collectif Sous le Manteau, whose first show “MONSTRO” premiered in january 2019. Due to health complications during the summer of 2020 Jesse was replaced in “MONSTRO” so that he could start a new creation: À 2 Mètres by ADM vzw. (Premiered in May 2021)
Parallel to this artistic career, he also developed his pedagogical works since 2011. Jesse intermittently taught at professional programs, namely, ESAC (Brussels), Académie Fratellini (Paris), Codarts (Rotterdam), ACaPA (Tilburg), ECB (Bordeaux), as well as gave several masterclasses and workshops in various locations all over the world. In 2020, following numerous bouts of pneumonia, and several hospitalisations, Jesse had to face a pulmonary capacity of 40%.

ROCIO GARROTE
Rocio was born in 1992 in Bahia Blanca, in Argentina. From an early age she went in the artistic direction by studying theatre, dance and circus. She educated herself at the two professional circus programs: Circo Soq and National University of San Martin.
From 2013 to 2015, she was a member of the contemporary dance company IFA-CDC from Luciano Cejas, where she was part in the creation of two shows. Passionate about movement and teaching, Rocio studied physical education at ISEF II, in Argentina. She decided to specialise in chinese pole at ESAC, in Belgium, from where she graduated in 2018. The same year, she participated in the project “Crece”, in Spain, and was part of the dance company TerazNow in Belgium. Since 2017, she is working in the chinese pole duo “Correspondance”. In 2019 she joined the circus and dance company “Hurjaruuth” in Finland. Currently, she is part of “À 2 mètres” by ADM vzw. as well as “Ploie sous mon poids” by Mauvais Coton in France.
