Avante-Circus Installation Performance

By Lisa M. Collins

Saturday March 3 and Sunday March 4 — 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Very limited seating. Reserve seats by email here.

French composer and musician Laurent Bigot puts on Le Petit Cirque performance, employing a complex sound object made of wood, plastic, strings and springs, at the Invisible Dog art gallery on Bergen Street.

Le Petit Cirque is a circus. Its handling is perilous, the danger of falling ever-present. In the same way that theater can be musical, Le Petit Cirque is a “circus of sound.“  It is also a theater of objects. Le Petit Cirque is made from odds and ends, salvaged material and cheap gadgets, but never relies on anecdote. Sound emerges from mise en scène. Action nourishes sound and sound gives new meaning to action.

Free admission / Suggested donation: $10

The performances of Le Petit Cirque are made possible thanks to the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and Institut Français.
