Yin is a long version of  Yin Zero for theaters

Yin is an invitation to shift one's perception, to change space-time, to cross the border between worlds.

In this dervish dance and juggling performance, the audience shares the full experience of spinning as they watch. From a soaring atmosphere to virtuoso juggling, they will be absorbed into a modern trance, a hypnosis punctuated by a revolving choreography.

Monad is a juggling and dance company created in 2018 by Van-Kim Tran and Cyrille Humen.


Van-Kim trained for the stage at the Lomme circus school and in dance with Carolyn Carlson, Zyia Azazi, and Jean-Daniel Fricker. He is co-author of the show Dystonie by the Defracto company.


After developing a very physical juggling technique, Cyrille now takes part in a new juggling training system called Faaac J. He also wrote the solo performance Dive.


The two artists both practice tai chi, which is very prominent in the company's work through the union of body, breath, and object.


In 2019, they received the Beaumarchais-SACD writing grant to develop their show Yin.
