10.2. – 20:00
Praha 2, Vinohrady
Se prendre, an experience in close proximity for adventurous spectators, carries us into the complexity of two acrobats’ intimacy. In an apartment, we follow them from one room to another, in gentleness and pain, with an amused curiosity or taken by the intensity of their presence. Tales of the coming together of our solitude, the show is its own mirror, brutal and tender, singular and disturbing. Confined hand to hand, adapted to daily life, the performance of the two artists is a total exposure: raw, moving, disruptive.
Co-creators and performers Claudel Doucet and Cooper Lee Smith are behind the intimate Se prendre. Claudel and Cooper cultivate an interdisciplinary creation approach, convening risk into the bodies and the presence to weaken the walls and rush into the energies that tense up, between violence and tenderness. Both acrobats graduated from the National Circus School in Montreal.
Important information: The performance has limited capacity and takes place in an apartment in Prague 2, Vinohrady, in walking distance from subway line A, subway station Náměstí Míru.
