Presentation

Under the big top, within a suspended network of wires, poles, ropes, and fabrics, the artists encounter their animal nature, their instincts, and their wild emotions... In packs, alone, or in couples, they explore what constitutes survival: the continuity of the species, the quest for food, and solidarity in the face of the challenges of existence. Honing their listening skills, the circus artists and musicians concentrate on detecting vibrations and emotions to become one with the living.

"Under the big top of Les Colporteurs, the seven acrobats of Cœurs sauvages combine a dreamlike universe with a very high level of technical expertise.”

– Le Figaro

After training at the Annie Fratellini national circus school, Antoine Rigot and Agathe Olivier worked with several companies before founding Les Colporteurs in 1996. They designed and built the company's big top, and, since then, they have been creating and touring their shows, under tents, in theatres, or in public spaces in France and internationally.
