Nos chemins

A programme of short pieces for the senses and the mind

Nos Chemins is a unique encounter every time, between a place, a time, an audience, and the short pieces we have developed between 2006 and today.
Our paths, as in any number of journeys in a landscape.
Our paths, as in an itinerary in the space of our works.
Our paths, where the Collectif offers up a poetic stroll, rich in its myriad relationships with music, where juggling and music travel side by side.

Although we do not really sing, this journey could be the libretto for our songs, the songs we patiently compose step by step together : a look at our bodies, our balls, the palette of our uniqueness.
With these short pieces for the senses and the mind, the jugglers and the musicians immerse us in continually changing landscapes, a multitude of perspectives and a thousand ways of observing our surroundings.

A programme of short pieces

Each time, we imagine a unique journey that will resonate differently depending on the settings, rethinking the relationship that is established between the works and the public who receive them. We compose the routes of Nos Chemins with eight short pieces and extracts from the repertoire : Ornements, Formule, Fragments, Dehors, Modérément chantant – extract from the piece Pan-pot ou modérément chantant, Le Cavalier – extract from the piece Nuit, La Vague and Le Pendule.

Our short pieces present very different universes and developments. The spectator can find himself immersed in an intimate journey, in the contemplation of moving paintings or in the euphoria of light choreographies…
To create a journey that corresponds to the places and times of the planned performance, we need a meet with your team on location to design the rhythm and colour of this unique show.
