Cirque Mania #18: La Vielle Souche

A tree and acrobat need each other to lean on

Have you ever noticed the beauty of a cumulonimbus cloud about to burst into tears? Can you recall the smell of post-rain humus ? When was the last time you caressed a tree, even a dead one?

In a dystopian far-future, meet Trebor (a tree in a pot) and Robert (an acrodancer). Intertwined, leaning on one another, these two entities exist in sync, supporting each other throughout the half-hour acrobatic dialogue that is La Vieille Souche. Minimalistic, absurd, optimistic, auditory and highly physical, the piece places Robert and Trebor on an equal footing. 

La Vieille Souche is an ode dedicated to life, in all its absurdity, and to the walnut tree at the edge of the garden of my childhood home; a tree who carried my first “cabanes”, the early sorrows of my heart, and who still wears – proudly – the scars of the swing’s ropes.
