After The Elephant in the Room, Cirque Le Roux presents the second opus of its diptych La Nuit du Cerf - A Deer in the Headlights, an original creation inspired by various events, mixing the French New Wave and the American Grindhouse movement of the 70s. An intrigue that is at once comic, strange and disconcerting.Miss Betty is dead.... Her three children gather in the family home at the end of a forest road to prepare for the funeral ceremony. Suddenly, with a screech of tires, a mysterious, shaggy, out-of-shape stranger arrives. From there, everything changes: the newly reunited family settles 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. La Nuit du Cerf" features a gallery of surprising, colourful, 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 rope... The company's creative choice and challenge is once again to take physical risks and create depth of emotion. This is a tribute to cinema, to the circus of today, to humanity in all its fun, its clumsiness and its splendour.

ABOUT CIRQUE LEROUX

Cirque Le Roux is a French circus company, based in New Aquitaine, founded in 2014, signing cinematic and high-flying works in tragi-comic and dreamlike atmospheres. Its four founders, Lolita Costet, Grégory Arsenal, Philip Rosenberg and Yannick Thomas, create in 2015 The Elephant in the Room, a delightfully retro crazy circus comedy, which has been performed more than 400 times around the world. With this show Cirque Le Roux received the Total Theater Award nomination and the Guichet Fermé award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015, and was awarded the Étoile du Parisien in 2017. In 2019, Cirque Le Roux is embarking on a second "cine-cirque" work that can be seen as a sequel to the first show, thirty-five years later. La Nuit du Cerf has already played more than 150 times in the regions, in France and in Europe. This creation has been nominated for the Molière 2020 for the best Visual Creation and has been broadcast on Culture Box.

"Together they showcase a sophisticated and exquisitely choreographed blend of top-flight acrobatics, handstands, hand-to-hand, roller-skating, tight wire, you name it, in a totally fresh and exciting presentation, all backed by a wonderfully eclectic soundtrack."
