Rhizome (FR)

La Spire

It’s 7 metres high and 18 metres long: the monumental and, at the same time, weightless steel construction by the French artist Chloé Moglia, founder of Compagnie Rhizome, known for her slow-motion performances with artistic accompaniment . Five acrobats move within this structure with ease and precision. They combine raw power, vulnerability and the fearless fight for survival with body art and elegance. All this before the grandiose backdrop of the sky above the city, which the audience, leaning back at ground level, can view from a new perspective.
