Théâtre de Fos / Les Elancées
Eight acrobats and four musicians mischievously hijack the life of a couple and their everyday objects in an explosive show featuring acrobatic lifts, live music, and breathtaking trapeze acts. Ordinary life spins out of control, household appliances get involved, fridges shake while bodies fly away in an acrobatic and joyfully communicative hullabaloo. Under their red-and-white big top, the aces of the stage intertwine domestic acts with the most incredible pirouettes for a zany catalog of our foibles!

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