Standing in front of us, four men advance and put into play the sure strength and power of their living bodies, in the masculine and sensual exaltation of some sort of fighting spirit. Their path is an obstacle course, made up of surprising and playful acrobatic games in which they constantly invent the rules. Walking, running, catching, grabbing, climbing, climbing further, always moving forward…
«Knowing you will lose does not prevent from struggling», as these four acrobats tell us, obstinately obliging themselves to the feat and relishing each challenge, taking us together with their bodies to the limits of their physiological reality and at the edges of the laws of physics.
With a script written as rules of a game, FACE NORD is an attempt to revive in mankind the playful innocence of a child, hence the origins and essential values of our acrobatic quest.
