TOHU, la Cité des arts du cirque Book

Back to childhood games!

HIATUS highlights these suspended moments where nothing happens, apodictic interstices to childhood games and creativity. Addressing the concepts of territories, spaces and partitions, the playground is circumscribed by a wooden palisade and a mesh fence. Cloistered in this courtyard, two acolytes enjoy constructing and deconstructing sculptures, weavings, places and routes, with the wooden blocks and clothes at their disposal. Through the window, the musician neighbor unknowingly accompanies the meanderings of their creations and their relationship. Intended for toddlers aged 2 and up, the vocabularies of dance, theater and circus are woven into a language without words, where the relationship to the other and to the space takes precedence. The musical universe combines the sounds of the wind, with clarinet and saxophone, and the rhythm of everyday sounds and manipulated materials, giving free rein to the instrumentalist to draw inspiration from both the artists on stage and the environment that surrounds them.
