Up the Pole Down the Pole

Chute Libre is a highly physical performance integrating circus arts, contemporary dance, and the art of parkour. A creation with five artists that plays with risk, trust and gravity, trying to reset the verticality of the body.  This is a show that challenges perspectives, a playground for five acrobats navigating one same space. Imagine contemporary dance, parkour, partnering acrobatics, Chinese pole, aerial hoop, and live music in a 60-minute show.


Five individuals explore their environment, creating their own path interlaced with the others. They develop their unique physical language and challenge the trust relations that emerge between them. Breath, wind, and suspension animate these bodies in movement as well as the raw energy and play that drive them to overcome their limits.=

Artistic direction and choreography: Simon Durocher-Gosselin and Elise Legrand
Artists on stage: Joachim Yensen-Martin, Gabriel Catudal, Marc Benazet, Simon Durocher-Gosselin and Elise Legrand.
