Cie Basinga’s shows focus on one of the oldest and most spectacular circus arts which is funambulism or tightrope walking. Sometimes, the shows require the lines to be hung very high, other times they are about complex evolutions performed on high. This time, the company does not show only physical skills or balance. Basinga presents the audiences with tensioned ropes on which they see the charismatic artist Tatiana-Mosio Bongonga. The show, assisted by the public, draws our attention to the role of cooperation and the power of helping. By encouraging to co-create the performance, the Basinga raises in the newly minted assistants a sense of commitment and highlights the strength that comes from giving a helping hand. It’s an exciting performance with the accompaniment of musicians.
