THE COLLECTIVE

our story

The company Entre Nous was born in April 2017 and is composed by five artists of different nationalities all trained in the circus arts. They have travelled, mingled with different cultures, and have become citizens of a world without borders.

Now reunited, the group has chosen a common path and builds a future together. In its artistic process, the company hoped to create collectively, gathered around a passion for the Chinese pole.

Between lightness and gravity’s effect, a story unfolds before the eyes of the spectators. The acrobats evolve in tridimensional space blending acrobatics with movement to create a vertical ballet.

THE SHOWS

what we do

“LE GRENIER ”

(“the attic”)

Show for theater/tent, premiere 05/18

The attic is an invitation to discover a space frozen in time. A place filled with abandoned objects that whisper a story full of dust and allow us to glimpse into the past of their stories. Five people find themselves in this place in order to sort through these memories. During this process of dusting, they recollect their illusions, their desires and their forgotten dreams. The attic evokes a time that fragments us, a time that separates us from what was. It traces a path between what we were and what we can become…

” ENTRE NOUS… ”

(“between us…”)

Show for summer festival, premiere 07/17

In an open space where nostalgia and human warmth intertwine, four artists from different backgrounds meet and reconnect around three Chinese poles. Complicity, intimacy, laughter and music merge in this show full of love that combines virtuosity and emotion. The four artists have developed a soft and emotional choreographic language around the Chinese pole. Acrobatics, dance, theater and music mingle to the point of being one.

THE ACT

gala and festival

” Solar system”

Act for gala, special events, TV show and much more…
Gold medal, Cirque du Soleil and Circuba prize in Saint-Paul-les-Dax international circus festival
2nd price of the 20th International Circus festival of Mureaux

“Solar System” is an uncluttered circus act where five artists evolve on three Chinese poles accompanied by music that is at times soft and mesmerizing and at times uplifting and frantic. By supporting, echoing and responding to each other, they accomplish vertical falls and vertiginous stunts. Inspired by the timeless and silent dance of celestial bodies, they orbit around their Chinese poles, which push them to defy gravity together as one.

CREATION

in process

“BORDERLINE”

Moving show through three spaces

Apart from strong acrobatic research through its physical commitment and innovation of diversion by the Chinese pole, the four characters on stage are engaged in a sensitive emotional journey. We are retracing the essence of humans and the ones who decide to free themselves by returning to the wild after reaching a saturation point in our society.

As we meet people from different backgrounds who have taken the step of breaking down, we immerse ourselves in their testimonies.

Using public space as our backdrop creates the best theatre for us to live this process and for storytelling because it allows us to be in direct interaction with and in response to the spatial context around us and the strangers observing us.

Understanding what states these people have gone through, both physically and mentally, will form the backstory of our characters; we will embody this journey from “breaking down” to liberation.

The subject is intense, and we will treat it in a tragicomic style so that it is digestible, sensitive, brilliant, touching, powerful and funny…
Human in short.
