U.S Premiere Tour. Direct from France.
The fantastic Cirque Inextremiste team and its 3400 m3 aerostat immerse the public, body and soul, in an unusual scenographic universe. In EXIT, a group finds themselves trapped in spite of themselves in a life-size epic. Their mission: to free themselves from their straitjackets and escape at all costs from this world governed by strict and implacable rules. The play area, transformed by the flight of the hot air balloon, is an open-air theatre where the artists’ aerial waterfalls coexist with the stars. Crescendo towards freedom, Exit offers an emancipation of the mind, a powerful, luminous and unifying artistic breath, a demonstration of the porosity of the border between art and madness.
Welcome to this new EXIT adventure!
About Cirque Inextremiste:
With gas cylinders as an emblem, Cirque Inextremiste has traveled from theatres to festivals across Europe since 2007. Driven by Yann Ecauvre, real risks and scathing humor are the watchwords of this company which always pushes the boundaries of the extreme further. Cirque Inextremiste now has 8 shows and around 50 members.
Yann Ecauvre, with an atypical and self-taught career, staged his first show in 2007 entitled "Inextremiste" around a trampoline and gas cylinders. In 2009, the company took the name Cirque Inextremiste. The "Extrêmités" trio was created in 2012, with boards and gas cylinders as accessories ! In the same crazy dynamic around a mini construction excavator, the second part called "Extension" was born in 2014.
Between 2015 and 2017, the Cirque Inextremiste team grew to create two new shows: a spectacular "Extreme Night Fever" ball and a large-scale street show around an hot-air balloon "Exit." In 2018, Yann offers a new balance show entitled "Damoclès." This participatory form questions the trust we place in each other in the face of a difficulty. The company then worked on 2 new creations released in 2021 and 2022: a funny and caustic clown solo titled "Malàdroite" and a 2nd solo carried by Yann which takes the form of a spectacular experience "WARNING" where the notion of risk is once again central.
