Lifelong friends from the streets of Bogotá, of which we can feel the chaotic rumbling, the artists of SOMOS talk about their childhood and shared memories. They play, push and tease each other, with gentle humanity.

This show, a celebration of the brotherhood, leaves the audience shaken and inspired. Only supported by impactful soundtrack and lighting, the six friends with a good sense of humour, communicate the power of their story and the beauty of togetherness, against all odds.

Wilmer Marquez, creator and artist in SOMOS, talks about the play and its purpose. Watch

El Nucleo

Acrobatic circus company El Nucleo, around since 2011, is led by two co-artistic directors, Wilmer Marquez and Edward Aleman, an acrobatic feat duo. Together, they develop artistic projects based on several of their own characteristics:

  • The connection to Colombia, their homeland, which shows through their sources of inspiration as much as their desire in the coming years to create direct artistic partnerships with the country.
  • Their self-taught multidisciplinary journey before joining the Centre national des arts du Cirque de Châlons in Champagne, a prestigious school in France.
  • Their experience as Colombians living in Europe, which inspires themes such as encounters, loneliness, homelessness, the place of everyone in the world, which can be found in their various artistic projects.
  • The search for a language and sensitive acrobatic composition.

"Nothing breaks the complicity and the fluidity of this acrobatic solidarity, delivered at arm's length and by force of sweat, carried by the clouds of talc which float like so many poetic clouds between the jets of the spotlights."

Se prendre

Claudel Doucet & Cooper Lee Smith, de LION LION

This experience in close proximity for adventurous spectators carries us into the complexity of two acrobats’ intimacy, whom we follow in an apartment from one room to another. Tales of the coming together of our solitude, the show is its own mirror, brutal and tender, singular and disturbing.

La Galerie

Machine de Cirque

A whole new creation by seven acrobats and a musician! In a series of group feats, the close-knit artists take us to an art gallery for a creative journey. Fun guaranteed!


DynamO Théâtre & Guillaume Doin du Collectif À deux roux

At the confluence of circus, magic and physical theatre, the bicycle show features an acrobat and objects that come alive and speak to us of transmission and legacy. A story of rebirth in all sweetness and poesy that will appeal to young and old alike.
