Cie Defracto (FR): Flaque

| circus

18 - 19 JAN 2018.

English friendly, TRAFÓ19

There will be some juggling. There will be slackness. There will be puddles. There won’t be any animal tortured, or banana spoiled, but there will be coffee, drops, and a procession for the last hours of queen Cleopatra. Flaque is a show in situ and non-determinist that goes beyond limits drawn by tape.
A delicious blend of juggling, dance and physical theatre, Flaque is like butoh mixed with slapstick. 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.
