A nos Fantômes

Aerial fable

On tour

Indoors – All ages from 6

Gloria was never a Swedish singer or a figure skating champion,
but she dreamed of it.
Hanging in midair, looking uncomfortably overdressed,
she’s waiting for things to happen.
Thud! Free fall entrance. A young woman lies on the ground.
The resemblance is uncanny. Could it be… her?

Menteuses [Be]

Sarah and Celia met at the ESAC (Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque of Brussels) in 2011. Sarah uses the free rope, Celia the cloud swing. The artistic connexion between the two was strong and immediate: a true complicity
on the stage, two distinct universes that meet in a certain theatricality full of absurdity and folly, and a particular reflexion on contemporary circus. In 2012, Sarah and Cecilia took part in the Masterclass « Cirque et Cinéma ».
This experience strengthened their desire of collaboration. They got exciting writing inspirations and ideas of research linked to the cinematographic art. Their already strong interest in cinema became a real artistic project with A nos fantômes. At this point, a young film director, Tom Boccara, joined them. His sensibility, his thoughts and knowledge on this domain brought a turning point for the project. Together, they tried to invent a unique language, at the crossroad of their different specialities.
