PERFORMANCE

TRITON

 

Triton is a satellite of Neptune. It's the only moon in the solar system with a retrograde orbit, that is, rotating in the opposite direction to its parent planet, Neptune. Here, Triton is an unusual dance performance about the circle and the circus, based on scattered and roundabout memories of astonished children –the starry big top, tightrope artists, crazy contortionists, friendly monsters, trapeze artists, breathtaking acts... Furtive images of a rickety old circus arriving out of nowhere, with its dodgy acrobats, visible mechanical effects, but true emotion...
