One Shot !

A Chinese pole, balls, a board, a drill, five axes, a microphone and an electric guitar, plus two artists, playing at frightening us and each other. As cool as the blues, as edgy as rock, this show revisits classic old circus acts with uninhibited freedom. There’s sliding, tests of balance (keeping it and losing it), chopping down and falling. At the end, it was hard to decide what impressed us most: the artists’ skill or the unpredictability of the objects they use.
