Six acrobats, three trampolines, a grandiose tribute to this dizzyingly spectacular discipline.

In ESQUIVE, six acrobats explore and pay tribute to one discipline: trampoline. Witnessing their complicity, the audience is invited to admire their trajectories, from the exhilarating lightness of flight to the relentless constancy that brings them back to the canvas.

By questioning gravity, weight, suspension and changing body states, the acrobatic score becomes a language. A language that expresses the intimate foundations of circus: the art of flight and risk-taking, a praise of fragility and utopia.

ESQUIVE is an invitation to contemplate the human desire to soar, to feel the continuous effort to extricate oneself from the fall.

For 25 years, Gaëtan Levêque has devoted himself to trampoline and made it his specialty. Versatile, he now passes on his art to a new generation, exploring this constantly evolving artistic discipline.

« C'est un véritable ballet acrobatique [...] et une ode à la liberté. »

About Gaëtan Levêque

At the age of 16, Gaëtan entered the École nationale des arts du cirque in Rosny-sous-Bois, then joined the Centre national des arts du cirque in Châlons-en-Champagne, where he made acrobatic lifts and trampoline his specialties. In the early 2000s, he was one of the precursors of a revival of the discipline, reinventing the canvas as a space for evolution. On his trampoline, he seeks sensation and conceives his apparatus as crossed by the movements of individuals, crowds and images of reality.

About Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde

Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde (PPCM) is a school for the arts of risk-taking, a working and creative space for artists, and a meeting place for the local community in Bagneux. Young artists stay here to create their first shows, companies find a place to work and perform, and all share their artistic practices with audiences who are often unfamiliar with the cultural scene. The PPCM initiates and supports artistic projects that aim to experiment and test daring forms of writing, as well as new relationships with audiences. The acrobatic gesture is at the heart of the PPCM's artistic project, which goes beyond the circus arts to include new forms linked to urban cultures, and is referred to as the "arts of risk".

« Un corpus acrobatique qui nous ramène aux fondements du cirque. »

« Dans un formidable crescendo musical et acrobatique, les suspensions s’accumulent et nous étourdissent de poésie. »
