Esquive is an invitation to contemplate the human desire to rise up ever higher and experience their continuous effort to prevent themselves from falling. Like in a waking dream, the audience is immersed in a dimension in which codes and references are shaken up.
Gathered around three pieces of bouncing canvas and a structure offering multiple inclinations, five acrobats explore and pay tribute to the suspended state made possible by the trampoline. By challenging gravity, weight, suspension and the change of the state of the body, the acrobatic performance becomes a spatial and corporeal language in itself. One that conveys the innermost foundations of circus arts: taking risks and performing in mid-air.
