São Teotónio
Cie. Trottola    •    New Circus    •    France


Two characters in search of light arrive from another place. They have known the glow of the depths and they seek the brightness of the peaks... Titoune and Bonaventure ring the bell, accompanied by musicians Thomas and Bastien. Time passes but the Trottola style remains unchanged, made up of virtuous feats and little things: those furtive moments when a mime, a bewildered look or a tilt of the back shatters us with both laughter and tears. And that is how these fascinating artists unleash their bodies to magnetise our hearts.
