A heart on the palm of your hand
According to art critics, contemporary circus performances featuring juggling will never be the same again thanks to this duet. Cirque Bang Bang was established by Elsa Guérin and Martin Palisse, who have been performing together for ten years now. POST is a subtle narrative about relationships, about the balance of love, about the power of hate, about the enduring value of cooperation, about the persistence of two bodies, and about obsession. It simultaneously tells the story of being human, about being dependent on other human beings, and about loneliness. As they alter known dimensions and pull the ground from under our feet, these two great virtuosos of juggling guide the audience through melancholia, sensibility, uncanny beauty and soft melodrama. Minimalism. Poetry. The little juggling balls that come flying through the air with tremendous speed sometimes seem like a heart on the palm of one’s hand, like a secret and fast handwriting, filled with meaning.
