Description : After The Elephant in the Room, Cirque Le Roux presents the second part of its diptych La Nuit du Cerf - A Deer in the Headlights. This original creation, inspired by various events, mixes French New Wave and American Grindhouse movement of the 70s. An intrigue at once comic, strange and confusing.
Miss Betty is dead.... Her three children gather in the family home at the end of a forest road to prepare the funeral ceremony.
Suddenly, in a screech of tires, a mysterious shaggy and out of place stranger arrives. From there, everything changes: the newly reunited family settles its accounts, tears each other apart, loves each other, grabs each other, laughs, laughs, cries, dances, goes off the rails... and the funeral goes off the rails.
Theme: The Night of the Stag features a gallery of amazing, colorful, charismatic and funny characters. A work where the singularity, fragility and tenderness of human relationships catch up with us. Six virtuoso circus artists perform a series of balancing acts, hand to hand, banquine, aerial acrobatics, aerial frame, wire... Physical risk-taking and the depth of emotions is once again the creative choice and challenge of the company.
It is at the same time a tribute to the cinema, to the current circus, to humanity in all its fun, its clumsiness and its splendor.
