Chute Libre is a new creation by the LaboKracBoom circus company. Based in Sherbrooke, QC, the company creates performances that integrate circus, dance and physical theatre since 2006. They have presented their work throughout Québec and Canada, as well as Europe, Mexico, and Brazil.
Chute Libre is a highly physical performance integrating circus arts, contemporary dance, and the art of parkour. A creation with five artists that plays with risk, trust and gravity, trying to reset the verticality of the body. This is a show that challenges perspectives, a playground for five acrobats navigating one same space. Imagine contemporary dance, parkour, partnering acrobatics, Chinese pole, aerial hoop, and live music in a 60-minute show.
Five individuals explore their environment, creating their own path interlaced with the others. They develop their unique physical language and challenge the trust relations that emerge between them. Breath, wind, and suspension animate these bodies in movement as well as the raw energy and play that drive them to overcome their limits.=
