English-friendly, TRAFÓ19

There will be some juggling and there will be slackness.
Flaque is a juggling performance, each one is unique. Besides precisely rehearsed sequences there is always space for improvisation and creation of unexpected situations that keep the performers and the audience alert. It’s possible to juggle with stretched arms, it’s possible to juggle even without objects, it’s possible to have 40 balls on the stage but never juggle with more than 3 and create a unique show. Erik and Guillaume are fascinating jugglers, besides the brilliant technique combined with dancing they open their characters with subtle humor.
The performers’ relaxed yet precise movements are reminiscent of cartoons and audiences will be left wondering whether it is the ball that controls the performer or vice versa. Defracto wittily illustrate their passion for juggling, treating it as a rhythmic and graphic discipline that flirts with dance and absurd humour. One big ball of energy. “This is juggling the way it is supposed to be: challenging yet accessible, raw yet subtle.” (De Morgen) One thing is for certain, however, in this show, the humans get dropped a lot more than the balls.
