N.Ormes is a circus show where the duo Agathe and Adrien push the limits and
expectations of their own bodies and gender norms.
Provocative, dysfunctional and tender, the piece brings the viewer to question
their own assumptions.
The story features two protagonists and their relationship navigating between
complicity and power struggles. Skilfully combining hand to hand, Icarian games
and dance, the stage becomes an arena. One by one, the archetypes fall in
battle, giving way to a quest for friendship and fairness through power and
With minimal scenography, and the rich lighting of Claire Seyller, we follow their
relationship through moments of frenzy and exhaustion. The original score by
Simon Leoza takes us through the intimate and grandiose evolution of the
protagonists, where the exchange of roles and lifts (maybe acrobatics?), like a
new language, blurs all our preconceptions.
