COLLECTIF PETIT TRAVERS Toulouse
A small spectacle between absurdity and melancholy
Can you play cello in a wardrobe? No, in spite of every attempt. How about outside? Maybe – a friend who plays accordion is waiting out there. With both musicians attempting to play their instruments while juggling a ball, the performance seems to teeter on the edge of disaster the entire time. “Le petit travers“ is magical, funny, grotesque and quiet musical poetry.
Denis Fargeton (29) originally wanted to be a pianist. After trying dance, he became involved in the circus as an acrobat. He later became interested in juggling and has since perfected this art.
Nicolas Mathis (27) learned the basics of circus art at “Cirque Plume” in Besançon. He also plays guitar and cello (jazz, folklore, Baroque music).
The two met in 1998 while studying at the “École Nationale du Cirque de Chambéry” and have worked together ever since. They are some of the youngest representatives of “Cirque nouveau.”
