After the big success of "Dios Proveera", stage directors David Bobée and Caroline Mutel, accompanied by the baroque Ensemble "les Nouveaux Caractères" conducted by Sébastien d'Hérin, tackle the cult work by Giovanni Battista Pergolese: Stabat Mater! By creating a series of portraits of pain, embodied by the dancers, they show us through this mix of music, acrobatie, dance and vocal performance how much the message of Pergolese of the in vain sacrificed humanity, is timeless.

In this creation of the Cirquons Flex company (Reunion’s Island), directed by Christophe Rules, musician, performer and ethnologist, four acrobats from Brittany, Madagascar, Reunion’s Island, and South Africa question climate change and more broadly the crises in our globalized society that is losing its roots. In Creole from Reunion’s Island, «La pli i donn» means "it rains". This circus / theater / musical / dance show is an ode to relationships between people and nature. The rain is hopeful because it gives life, even if the road is long.

The well-known French director David Bobée decided to tell the history of Columbia with acrobats from Bogota. A combination of aesthetic acrobatics & dance choreographies, striking costumes, imaginative settings, live South-American baroque music and video screenings recall in a very powerful way how the colonizers subjugated the local population: where the sublime goes alongside the brutality. The host presentation of the show can be cut by request.

The Circus Phénix of Paris presents a Cuban show with 50 acrobats, dancers & musicians who perform 12 colorful scenes, giving a hybrid identity to this creation between a musical & a genuine circus show (without animals).
