Sinué (2012)

Jun 10 2014 Sophie Tessier


If night-time was simply for play
Leaving worry to the day,
Rules would suddenly blow away
Then a thrilling exhilaration
Feeling ready to fly the nest

Sinué is inextricably intertwined in the growing up game between Jules and the four imaginary versions of himself, all intrepid and interdependent occupants of a mysteriously leaning Tree/Tower rooted in a forest of ropes and shadows.
Each is trying to find their own special place, discovering and experimenting with their surroundings, guided by a wide-eyed, childlike excitement.


Find a little space at the foot of the Tree, enjoy a moment of solitude at the top: balancing on a chair, or venturing out on a board at the edge of a void are examples of simple pleasures in an unsteady world.


The Tower cannot stay in place for long, shaken when everyone starts to get pins and needles and an exciting and vulnerable rebellion ensues.


For its fifth show, Feria Musica is continuing its foray into contemporary circus arts with a new creative production which is open to movement and favours the emergence of a sensitive acrobatic language. Live music, as a key element in the creative process, provides the narrative for the progression of the five artists through an inventive palette of sounds, disturbed or urged on by the drones of the electro-acoustic hurdy –gurdy, and punctuated with bursts of percussion.


Sinué is loosely based on “Petit Jules”, an illustrated tale by Anne Ducamp.
