Dance and Juggling Redefined, Sept. 26 2015 @ Alliance Française Auditorium
A breathtaking performance by Eric Longequel and Guillaume Martinent, winners of the Young Circus Talent Prize in 2009/10. The duo has developed its own juggling rules where there are no catches, nor objects, the rubber bodies of the dancers engaging in physical movements that are midway between the Japanese ‘butoh’ dance, hip hop dance and slapstick. Precise, flexible and virtuosic, the duo display a dazzling vitablity in a performance that is challenging, fresh, raw and full of finesse.
The group is on a Pan-African tour supported by Institut Française, the French agency for cultural cooperation.
