By mischievously contorting the life of a couple and all of its familiar situations and everyday objects, these eight acrobats and the four musicians offer an explosive show that blends acrobatic lifts, live music, and breathtaking trapeze acts.

With Dans ton coeur [In Your Heart], a couple’s everyday life gets out of hand, and banal situations give rise to outrageous acrobatics. The first meeting, it’s love at first sight. Then, once the exaltation and passion dwindle, routine settles in, and arguments break out. This is how life goes… Refrigerators sway, washing machines are passed from hand to hand, and the bathtub flies into the air. Daily life is a panic, and everything is running amok in this acrobatic and joyfully communicative hullabaloo.

The artists of AKOREACRO intertwine familiar gestures with the most incredible pirouettes and transform the littlest movement into sublime and madcap feats. Played out under their red and white big top, this zany inventory of our human foibles is a show to enjoy with the entire family!

"Inventive, rapid, circus-like, musical, Dans Ton Coeur deserves the success it generates wherever it goes." 

– Le Monde 

“A gem, a marvel, we don’t even know how to describe Dans Ton Cœur as this circus show reaches new heights."

– Le Figaro
"Sensations of physical prowess, the joy of the audience, awakening the imagination, everything is here. Bravo!" 

– Artistikrezo.com

For more than ten years, AKOREACRO has defended and promoted a new, popular, and acrobatic form of circus. These zany artists are experimenters, dreamers, and virtuoso performers, and the group seeks to constantly outdo itself and push the limits of what can be achieved.

Physical prowess is the foundation of AKOREACRO’s artistic approach, and the company has developed a unique and engaging language that forms a relationship between acrobatics and music.

This is a circus that is open to everyone and a place where the circus tent becomes an artistic tool in its own right, a unifying object and a breeding ground of creation. This vision fosters a mode of operation where everyone can contribute their skills, ideas, and desires, and it results in sublime artistic chaos structured around humor, love, and human relations…

The company performs around Europe to seek new challenges and to encounter new audiences.

With Dans ton cœur, the family has expanded and has embraced the talented director Pierre Guillois, who is the author and performer of the irresistible burlesque melody Bigre. For this occasion, this master of derision has invented a blend of writing and acrobatics that inspires a dialogue between the disciplines.

Welcome to all of you who pass under the tent! Take a chance and take a seat! Time will stop with this circus and a whirlwind of emotions will embark you on a one-of-a-kind voyage.
