ARTos Foundation and the French Institute in Cyprus, in collaboration with the Municipality of Nicosia, present “Circus Arts Fest”; an outdoor circus arts performance which will take place at Eleftheria Square in Nicosia, on the 24 April at 18:00. Two French companies will be performing on that occasion: “La Main s’affaire”, a pair of hand-to-hand acrobats, and the “Longshow Company”, offering a contemporary juggling and graphic manipulation show.
Circus performances and companies:
“All Right!” (30’)
Acrobatic show, by La Main s’affaire
A turbulent relationship between two artists: technical harmony but ideological opposition. How can they demystify the entertainment and stimulate the critical mindset through breathtaking acrobatic lifts? Through the use of humor, a touch of irony and solid acrobatic skills, the duo aims at showing that there are numerous ways to watch the flow of information that surrounds us.
Visual illusions show, by the Longshow Company
In this solo creation, through his own dreams and chimeras, Nicolas Longuechaud draws and shares with the audience the singular story of one circus, his circus. Made from collective memory and inspired by almost true stories, everything mixes up together for the character. Between circus, cabaret, and fair theatre atmosphere, on the edge between hypnotic and graphic manipulations, new magic, and curiosity sideshow, this show will open up a world of wonder around perception.
Circus Arts Fest is taking place within the framework of the 7th X-Dream Festival
