Directing intentions
Celeste is a theatrical creation retracing the journey of an old circus artist at the crossroads of the traditional circus and the new circus.
Life in the circus is tough ... When you grow up in it, you can only obey adults ... Adults impose a role model on you. Celeste's role model is Lilly Yokoi. Through hard work and hard work, Lilly is one of the greatest cycling acrobats of all time. But the inner child in all of this ?
Terrible evocation of the traditional archaic circus, violent, hard, flirting madly with danger, and yet not devoid of great outbursts of tenderness. Circus where children were trained like animals Céleste takes us in the whirlwind of its distorted, sublimated memories: colorful horses, gigantic elephant, big roaring and leaping beasts, extravagant trainer. Cult of the body and its prowess as well as its decline and relentless old age.

Stage designing
A brightly colored circus ring, glitering with hundreds of bulbs. Small visions carts…

On the back, the Entry! Wide translucent moving curtains (bright plastic strips)… From those circus, funfair and music hall worlds, we borrow the acidulous colors, the smokes, lights and sequins…
