Appuie-toi sur moi
A subtitled version is available in English
Lean on Me is a circus tale, a confidential telling of the vagaries of an improbable meeting in a setting that draws in the audience.
A circus tent open to the sky, an octogonal stage centered by a Chinese pole, this is the setting for the tale the artists bring alive with their bodies and their voices. The acrobatics, the gestures and the theatrical quality of the bodies resonate with the oral tale without ilustrating it as such. The spectators gathered round the scene find themselves closely associated to the open-hearted revelations of the two protagonists.
