Live Performances

Même Pas Peur

Circus - Géographie Affective Agency

Age 6 and up

Who has never been afraid? Who has never overcome their own fear? I dare you!

It takes courage to overcome fear. It is an emotion that can either give us wings or hold us back. How do you learn to grow up and live with fear? Two artists meet up. One is an aerial rope artist, the other a storyteller.

Dimitri isn’t afraid of heights. He likes to climb very, very high. Olivier likes to stay firmly on the ground. He likes to watch and wait. Dimitri isn’t afraid of anything. Olivier controls his fear. What if things were reversed? There is a challenge in the air and stories that will give us thrills.
