Circus Baobab masterfully combines tradition and modernity in an explosive circus experience. In Yé, a group of 13 talented dancers and acrobats from West Africa explore with youthful bravado major contemporary themes such as global warming, pollution and power over a rare resource: water. They package all this in a unique performance that is almost bursting at the seams with conviction, energy and humor. Expect giant human pyramids, hand-on-hand acrobatics and people being thrown 7 meters into the air.
Yé is directed by Yann Ecauvre, co-founder of Cirque Inextremiste and a true master of humor in the void. Together, Yann and the artists form an unbeatable team that propels each other to great heights, often literally. They launch each other into the air, building huge structures with bodies and using powerful body language to question the world around them. In a fiery argument about water, they brew a fizzy cocktail of elegance and power. Yé!
Please note! The performance features stroboscopic light.
“Incredibly powerful with conviction and humor.“
