Sinué

Sinué is inextricably intertwined in the growing up game between Jules and the four imaginary versions of himself, all intrepid and interdependent occupants of a mysteriously leaning Tree/Tower rooted in a forest of ropes and shadows.

Each is trying to find their own special place, discovering and experimenting with their surroundings, guided by a wide-eyed, childlike excitement.

Find a little space at the foot of the Tree, enjoy a moment of solitude at the top: balancing on a chair, or venturing out on a board at the edge of a void are examples of simple pleasures in an unsteady world.

The Tower cannot stay in place for long, shaken when everyone starts to get pins and needles and an exciting and vulnerable rebellion ensues.

For its fifth show, Feria Musica is continuing its foray into contemporary circus arts with a new creative production which is open to movement and favours the emergence of a sensitive acrobatic language. Live music, as a key element in the creative process, provides the narrative for the progression of the five artists through an inventive palette of sounds, disturbed or urged on by the drones of the electro-acoustic hurdy –gurdy, and punctuated with bursts of percussion.


Sinué is loosely based on “Petit Jules”, an illustrated tale by Anne Ducamp.

Paccagnella, Mauro

Mauro Paccagnella (I/B) is an Italian dancer, actor and choreographer who has lived in Brussels for the past 20 years. He switches between choreography, staging and the act of performing. Working with many Belgian companies (Flamand, Ponties, Traoré, De Soto, and so on), and has danced in films by Thierry De Mey and Nicole Mossoux. Since 2002 he has performed with choreographer Caterina Sagna in Relazione Pubblica, Heil Tanz!, Basso Ostinato and P.O.M.P.E.I.


 A co-founder in 1993 of the « Un oeuf is un oeuf - Biters Productions » company, he created the Woosh'ing Mach'ine collective in 1998. After Cyber Beans (SACD Award 1998) and research project Dog-Tricks (among them Babylonia Kiss with Alessandro Bernardeschi),), he created The Siegfried's Swan Song (2006-2011) tetralogy. He set and directed the last two creations of the Belgian contemporary circus company Feria Musica Infundibulum in 2009 and Sinué in 2012.


 He is currently performing in creations by Caterina Sagna for Bal En Chine and with Olga de Soto for Autour de la Table Verte by Kurt Jooss.

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.
