With humour and derision, Joris Frigerio and his Compagnie Les Hommes de Mains create Citizen, a minimalist circus feat focused on the music of the body.
This project is a return to our roots, a stripped-down, naked circus. In this show, they want to get as close as possible to the vibrant bodies of the acrobats, to listen to the music of the bodies that invites us to dive deep inside ourselves.
In composing this score with Marine Larat, they want to surprise the audience, disorientate them, disturb their perception and grab their attention. The aim is to hold up a mirror to our frenzy, our eagerness and the restlessness that infects us. They think it's a good idea to look this madness in the face, this pressure from society that we put up with and that suits us ridiculously well.
Through the minimal, delicate form of the play, we want the audience to move from unease to relief, from tension to laughter, which can save us.
