Presentation

In a powerful hand-to-hand combat, two harnessed men are seeking to control each other's bodies. The cautious enjoyment they take in transforming each other into instruments, pieces of equipment, playgrounds, or battlefields commits them to a consensual struggle. Caught between traction and attraction, the pair do not seek power over the other, but rather power with the other.

"An acrobatic style that is stripped down, raw, rough, and unconventional.”
Télérama

The Un loup pour l’Homme circus company uses its practice of acrobatic lifts as a way to defend a vision of humanity made up of social beings that are as different from as they are dependent on each other. More than a medium to be shaped, hand-to-hand acrobatics is a true language and a laboratory for human relations.
