Circus Puzzle

Circus Puzzle makes room for harmony between bodies and objects. Circus Puzzle unfolds objects, props and apparels, into tools, shelters, vehicles; into language.
Circus Puzzle reminds us that we never get all the pieces, helps us to deal with absurdity, even to embrace it !

Les Objets Volants: Circus Puzzle

Circus Puzzle finds balance within instants, cultivates patience, plays with risk, chooses the most surprising way instead of the easiest. Circus Puzzle is a glow, a window, an answer to life, universe and everything.

Circus artists suffer utopia syndrom. We would like to be light, to twist matter at will, to get everything we want and need nothing. So we endlessly seek a solution. Circus Puzzle is a game, a research about assembling stumbled across fragments into an identity.
