After Mamacircus, which was created at the MAMAC contemporary art museum in Nice for the 2019 edition of the European Night of Museums, the company has a new creation: Renversante [Staggering]. The show takes the form of surprising strolls and raw performative encounters.
Like modern art performers, these men and women bring their bodies into play. They embark on the conception of a collective creation that incorporates on-the-spot improvisation according to their feelings and the surrounding objects.
Renversante will echo works from permanent collections and temporary exhibitions while offering a unique face-to-face experience.

Joris Frigerio and Matthieu Renevret are a hand to hand balancing duo that trained at the CNAC national circus arts center and then created their company in 2010. Joris, a circus artist who took his first steps in a theater, conceives the performance. Beyond the hand to hand balancing, they are men and women who do not hesitate to plunge themselves into creation. They are on a quest for emotion, meaning, and pleasure. These movement artists have a wide range of talents, but their hearts beat to the rhythm of the circus. A circus that flirts with documentary, dance, theater, digital arts, and electronic music... All of this will offer the dark canvases of their creation sparks of humor and light as they investigate our intimate questions with authenticity, truthfulness, and poetry.
