Éternels Idiots

A portrait of adolescence, a feverish and contagious acrobatic art.


“If possible, never build a life; keep the passion of the first times forever…” writes the dramaturge Ronan Cheneau. Dedicated to adolescence and its sense of urgency, this creation by El Nucleo presents six performers at full strength, inspired by their experiences in a school environment. A convertible, moving hopscotch made of metal portrays a playground, as well as a teenager’s bedroom, hidden behind barred windows. Following Somos, El Nucleo’s previous show that wowed UP! in 2018, the company continues to draw its formidable energy from the breath of life.
