The Tiny Circus at the edge of the World

In a beautiful and surreal circus universe, audiences of all ages are invited on a journey. A magical performance about friendship and freedom – beyond the boundaries of gravity!

Somewhere, way out on the edge of the world, exists a floating rock. A parallel universe, a whimsical planet where time is suspended. Here resides a troglodyte (half-human/half-stone), whose quiet life is disrupted by the arrival of a curious explorer. The explorer carries with her a suitcase filled with circus and magic. The troglodyte’s world is shaken and thrown out of balance, but perhaps together they can create a new equilibrium in this little universe?

Karen Bourre is a juggler, trained at Circus Space in London, and has worked with companies such as Gandini Juggling, Cirque Baroque Cie Préoccupé, Cie Jérôme Thomas, the duet “Have a Ball,” and Cie Manie.

Julien Lanaud, lighting designer, with a background at the Théâtre de l’Eclaircie, Les Derniers Hommes, Frac Théâtre, Cie 9,81, Cie Jérôme Thomas, Cie Gandini juggling, Der Lauf, Oslo Telescopic – and in his collaboration with Karen, he has cultivated a preference for DIY stage design with a touch of magic.
