Salle Guy Obino
With his head permanently buried in his machines, an inventor invites us to enter his world and experience his insatiable and utopian quest for balance. To overcome his limits, this whimsical character goes off the beaten path and does not hesitate to plunge into his dreams. After finally recognizing who he is, he speaks to himself, accepts himself, and struggles against himself because he is both the one with self-doubt and the one who launches himself into the adventure. Reflets [Reflections] is a feat of acrobatic mischief, a hand-crafted show created in the intimacy and poetry of a big top.

"From raw materials to poetic instants, the tandem masters its art and provokes emotions and thrills."
– La Provence
Created in 2004, the 3 x Rien company focuses its artistic research on a poetic approach to circus movements. Circus techniques are not a goal in themselves, instead, they are integrated into the overall vision and, therefore, entirely devoted to the performance situations and artistic intentions. Reflets is the fifth creation of the company and the second under their big top.
