When 6 circus artists: acrobat, clown, juggler, gymnast, trapeze artist, contorsionnis, led by Bernard Kudlak, artistic director of the Plume Circus, cling to the notes of Mauricio Kagel, interpreted by the musicians of the Télémaque Ensemble under the direction of Raoul Lay, what results is a total spectacle which abolishes the frontiers between the arts.

This marriage of contemporary music and of the new circus will be celebrated under the aegis of humour, lightness, tenderness and skill.
"Humour", says Mauricio Kagel, "is an essential element in life. If I should lose my sense of humour, that would mean that my end was near. Humour is the most serious thing in the world."
Music and the circus, the circus act, precise, taking place in real time, involving its actor in a moment of eternity, in face of imagined death or in real danger. Music, the circus and the complicity of all the artists to invite us to a simple turn of the merry-go-round, a simple little turn of magic and tenderness.
