The Painting

Le fusain de Charles Belle, en forêt et en spectacle {JPEG} FRANCE - Franche-Comté
The canvas used in the show is by Charles Belle. The work was created with charcoal at the end of the year 2015 in the heart of the Rochejean forest in Doubs, France. It remained in place, stretched out among the trees for 608 days, or seven seasons, or twenty full moons, before joining the dreamlike forests of Cirque Plume. A big thank you to Charles for this gift.
With Cirque Plume since 2017
