Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

This heart-warming duet sees a man try a physical approach to the notion of the paternal bond with his son.

Together, they explore the imbalance of their strength, try to find precision, discover the desire to play with each other and take a chance on tenderness.

Age Recommendation: 7+

About Naïf Production
Naïf Production is a creator of live performances and collective adventures. It was founded by Sylvain, Mathieu and Lucien, three acrobats trying to put into dance the gravity of the world based on a singular relation their bodies and minds have with gravity. They create scenarios of images and gestures revolving around the themes of disequilibrium, resistance and effort that are focused on physical engagement. They undertake individual and collective initiatives and operate on a cooperative basis. Each of their projects is an opportunity to reinvent new structures, to coexist and to work together.
