Ice Skates And Other Cruelties

Camille Paycha

In ‘Ice Skates And Other Cruelties’ you will see smooth moves and sharp glass. Hopefully a carved body will slice the glass, and will it be avoided that the carved glass slices the body.

A brutal poetry with a perfume of sublime cruelty.

This performance, which takes place on a synthetic ice rink, draws the lines of an ever-changing landscape where something cruel can find its poetry and something beautiful can reveal its full violence.

With this show, Camille is a laureate for CircusNext 2020 - 2021. CircusNext is  a European circus label: the creators selected by a European jury stand out for their singularity and creativity. Their art works question us, jostle us, enchant us, move us.
