James Thiérrée is one of Europe’s most endlessly inventive and unclassifiable artists, constructing epic dream-like spectacles that areinspiring and captivating.
Born into the circus, his performances on stage and screen have often drawn on this colourful background. Constantly researching and developing his practice, Thiérrée now defies the codes of circus, dance and theatre.

The imposing sets create a dark and ominous environment; a massive panel of tangled tubes and mirrors flips and turns centre stage. Moving incessantly across the staging as it re-shapes, the dancers execute random steps in space.
