SPIDER CIRCUS is an open-air unique and wacky circus, whose artists are spiders. Composed of 70 bright spiders, a structure shaped tent and a sound system multicast, this 360° installation is both a monumental light sculpture and a live performance. Relying on the principle of decomposition of movement (ignition programmed in stop motion), spiders move in the air on their spiderweb, which is also the circus tent. They perform a series of acrobacies with amazing agility and cleverness. They become successively acrobats, dancers, wild animals, clown or magicians under the influence of a master of ceremonies the character is tamer, “Monsieur Loyal” and a musical band that turns the place into a great place to party.
Through their movements and actions, they form a lively ballet: a live, funny and fascinating show. Real arachnotherapy, this work cures all our irrational fears like magic!
Let the circus begin!
