NAC Presentation

Suspended in air, a platform begins to move, slowly, then faster, spinning, tilting, pivoting, swinging. Six dancers seem to defy gravity, hanging on to the platform, leaning into the spin, climbing, falling, tripping, running with incredible agility, grace and skill. Three men and three women become couples in a fleeting, tender embrace, or a crowd, jostled in close quarters, or rivals in a perilous race, their survival interdependent.

Uplifting and awe-inspiring, acrobat, actor, juggler and dancer Yoann Bourgeois’s beautiful, playful movement expresses an ongoing fascination with the idea of weightlessness, and leaves us breathless.
