Un minuto

A show directed by Roberto Magro, music by Simon Thierrée with third year students from the Higher School of Circus Arts.

Inspired by the idea of a “unique and happy moment” as evoked by the poet Mario Benedetti, Roberto Magro suggests that ESAC students focus on the moment and its importance. How could even a flash of extraordinary joy arise from the routine of everyday life?
How can we overcome frameworks, habits, comfortable certainties? How can we bring about the epiphany, this revelation to ourselves of what we didn’t know we were hiding, let’s say the promise of a butterfly?

One minute ! Do you smell this scent of emptiness?
With the help of Jean Michel Guy, Milan Herich and Sara Sguotti.

Pas de 2 chez soi

Second year workshop of the higher school of circus arts and Master Dramatic Interpretation of INSAS directed by Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski with the collaboration of Natacha Nicora, Manolo Sellati and Philippe Vande Weghe.

Inspired by Tango, by Polish director Zbigniew Rybszynski, the idea of a “body double” and “Kommunalka” (communal apartments in the Soviet Union), Pas de deux chez soi brings together students under the leadership of Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski of INSAS and ESAC. Actors and circus performers come together in a common logic of repetition and routine, carrying musicality; in a new physical language, because it is always intertwined with the duet partner; and in a trajectory between constant promiscuity and multiple solitudes.
