James Thiérrée: La Veillée des Abysses / FULLY BOOKED

If you enjoyed last year’s Cercle Invisible, then this is definitely for you! Audiences can look forward to an hour-and-a-half of fantastic, sizzling new circus guaranteed to keep them in stitches.

Good evening,

I would have loved to tell you a story ...about "La Veillée des Abysses "...
unfortunately, it keeps eluding me....

Ah yes ! I remember, the end... that feels like a beginning... unless it is the opening scene... that looks very much like an end ... Then there's the title ... "Tales of the Deep"? "Night Watch of the Deep"? Literally untranslatable... Could also be, "Laveil Leedesab Bysse s"... if you prefer... But let us not get tangled up with words, the show will do that quite naturally!

Aaah... memories... an optimistic shipwreck ... aboard which a strange gathering of individuals obey laws they do not understand, ascending the tormented abyss...up to the whirling winds of freedom.... The journey cannot be rushed, and every step of the way will question our characters willingness to keep the fire burning... to stick together...however relentless their loneliness. Their world will vanish.. but not without a joyous fight !!

Do not worry, ladies and gentlemen, for it is still entertainment we are talking about!!
We will tumble, bend, dance, sing... and fly... for you. I promise. This is the fire I was talking about earlier... I also promise ... not to try to explain my show again, if you promise... not to ask me !!

Good night, James Thiérrée

"A spectacle not to be missed." (Ballet Dance Magazine, 9.4.2004) "Shipwrecked on its own ethereal beauty, somehow joyous and yet bereft at the same time, the latest show from French circus creator James Thiérrée is a marvel, unlike any piece of circus that you have ever seen." (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, 10.4.2004)
