Daral Shaga

Daral Shaga is an opera at the crossroads of circus arts and theatre-cinema. Following the encounter of a returning emigrant and a father/daughter duo on the way to a better place elsewhere, the show tackles the theme of the border and the loss of identity. Five acrobats confront several walls, projection spaces of bodies and images, accompanied in their journey by three singers, three musicians and a phantom choir. 

The challenge behind this creation is to give the circus a real place within a contemporary opera, while also reflecting the violence of the illnesses of exile.

Feria Musica

Artistic direction: Philippe de Coen

Creation: 1995

To take this circus elsewhere. Elsewhere, which is to say somewhere the spectator is not expecting. An undiscovered place. An unknown feeling.

To bring together acrobats and musicians, acrobats and choreographers, an ingenious builder and a director. To join a range of artists who are ready to take part in the adventure that is a creation without wishing to impose their own technique.

To renew the circus apparatus, to explore its possibilities beyond the accomplishment of the perfect figure. To delve into the known to retrieve the singular.

To tell. Without guiding the spectator in a down-to-earth story. To translate through one or other acrobatic act, light or violent, small or grandiose, a view of one or other everyday act, harmful or harmless, damnable or praiseworthy.

To put to music, to give it particular attention. A lively music, played on stage, in order to inspire, respond, suggest.

To be ambitious, to occupy the stages, to build a monumental circus apparatus. And to dare to gather a group. To be plural, to be many, to get as close as possible to our frailties, emotions and longings.

Parcours

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
