EXPERIENCE CONTEMPORARY CIRCUS & DANCE AT THE ALLIANCE FRANCAISE DE SAINTE LUCIE – Free Entry
March 9th – Show
March 11th – Workshops and masterclasses with the artists (limited number – call before coming)
« La main de la mer », a circus and dance piece for 7 performers staged by Gaëtan Levêque (AOC collective, associated artist with the Plus Petit Cirque du Monde) is a performance carried by a team of four dancers from the Caribbean and the Amazonian and three circassians from the National Center of the Circus Arts.
This creation invites the public for a travel through the memory of the West Indies. Alternately physical prowess or delicate poetry, this piece at the crossroad of skills let emerge a commun physical language through a tale that takes a particular attention and honesty on what History imposed. Let’s imagine a travel from 1640 to our days, red thread guiding us out of the beaten tracks of Official History.
Let’s take the time to follow men and women, to see the evolution of their relationships and to see an inner ready to tell his tale.
