How did the performance La Fuite/Escape become an acrobatic burlesque, and how can we also stage stories about the world in this language
Duration: 60 minutes
Author and mentor: Matias Pilet
About the workshop:
The workshop will be conducted by Matias Pilet, co-author of the performance La Fuite/Escape. Matias will revisit segments of the performance with the participants. By mixing acrobatics and burlesque, he’ll try to show how acrobatics can create a language which allows you to tell a story and describe a state of the world.
