Shooting in a cultural centre opening its spaces to amateur performances.
The beginning of this month was the opportunity for me to venture in the backstage of a theatre play and to shoot their final run-through. Nothing less than a midsummer night’s dream by Shakespeare : a rather ambitious choice for a troupe of amateurs, but there’s nothing theatre cannot show with a hint of imagination.
This year, my visit of the Paris international fair of contemporary art (FIAC) turned out to be a lot about Brussels-based American dancer Daniel Linehan, who was invited for a couple performances.
This giant choreography signed by Akram Khan, in association with the théâtre du Châtelet, brought together over 700 dancers of all levels in front of the Paris city hall. Many congratulations to them for the beautiful show, and enduring the crushing heat of that day.
Here are pictures of the Existe en Ciel circus solo, performed by acrobat, dancer and comedian Théo Touvet. The title of the show is a pun suggesting that something exists up in the sky, while sounding like the word “existential”.
