After putting on a performance of Fugue/ Trampolin in every corner of the planet, a dizzying spectacle of a man dancing on a staircase leading nowhere, Yohann Bourgeois offers his audience the chance to fully immerse themselves in his iconic work.

In partnership with virtual reality filmmaker Michel Reilhac, he offers a mixed reality experiences set to a piece by Philip Glass. It is a sort of collective experience where the spectators find themselves on board a spaceship in distress, a moment of total weightlessness between circus, dance, poetry, etc.

Yoann Bourgeois

He grew up in a small village in the Jura. The rest passed very quickly. For some years now, with his accomplices, he has been implementing a programme of uninterrupted creation, consisting of defusing time, called: Tentatives d’approches d’un point de suspension. His life is dedicated to living art. Since 2016, he co-directs the CCN2 – Centre chorégraphique national de Grenoble with Rachid Ouramdane.
