ConTempo 2022: “L'absolu” | Boris Gibé / Les Choses de Rien (France)

“We don't want to reveal everything that audiences will experience in the show - it is a poetic, spatial, visual and sensory big bang - but one thing is certain: in “L'asbolu”, you will see the work of a true artist, for whom circus, in its core essence, is a unique tool for existential exploration and filled with secret and deep heartbeats” - Le Monde.

“L'absolu” is a poetic jump into our psyche. A journey from immanence to transcendence, from the inside to the outside, from reality to imagination. It's a show that puts emotions back in the center stage of our lives. The performance is primal and raw creativity rather than a show that will speak into our unconsciousness. With a graceful movement, Boris Gibé touches the inner depths and embodies the constant struggle with ourselves, that is not lacking the tragedy, transformations, and the search for absoluteness. The essential part of the performance is a Silo tower, with spaces for the performance and the audience. The structure is made of a corrugated metal sheet; it is 9 meters in diameter and 12 meters high. As the performance creators state, “We wanted to create something new while staying true to our roots: give context to the devising of the show and create a space that would somehow remind audiences of a venue and give spectators a physical and sensory experience.” Therefore, moving in a silo-shaped tower, the performer seems to dive into transcendence, creating a unique opportunity for the audience to follow the character's fate from above.
