You can do it
on 26 May before the performance: the participants of our year-long social circus workshop series will be teaching juggling to the audience of Le Vide. If you want to know what this is about, here it is.

Some call it a performance, others call it a show. It is hard to describe this surprising, humorous and thoughtful form which one can see as an extreme physical rendering of Albert Camus’ “Myth of Sisyphus”, or maybe just a questioning on this simple object that is a rope hanging down from the ceiling.

With a rarely seen intensity, 'Le Vide – The Void' questions the absurdity of life, the resistance of a portable cassette player, and the 9 meters of emptiness between us and this one guy up there who could fall at any moment. Specifically re-adapted for each place in which it is shown, delivering a new reading of the venue’s architecture, this show is a build-up towards the dizzying and joyful feeling of being alive!
