Our illuminated and magical carriage pulled by an oversized percheron is coming your way. Welcome to the ball!

Meet our wonderful stiltwalkers, our lamplighters, our lampshade ladies fluttering around and our two evanescent lovers. Portraits that have stayed still for too long, escaping from Renoir’s, Degas’ and Mucha’s paintings. The characters introduce the audience to a fanciful world. Those revellers from the past wake up to dance in your streets!

In this world playing the game of appearances, they come back to the essence. Wearing a mask is essential in the social game. A secret is hidden between characters and spectators. It’s a disturbing invitation. They come and escape the time of a show. Illuminated, they cut the night… The acrobats refer to this modern and dazzling century.

Ladies and gentlemen, before your very eyes, please discover the choreographed splendour, the exploding, affectionate and unexpected movement, a delusional and unique experience… You’ll see! You’ll dance along.

This show slides and flies by, intangible and unreal. In a wonderful madness, a ball will be taking place tonight.
