Joli Vyann is a multi-award winning dance organization set to bring a brand new show to the opening weekend of Arts by the Sea. ‘Lance moi en l’Air’ is Joli Vyann’s new summer show, choreographed by Florence Caillon with original music by Xavier Demerliac. Ultimately, the show is about the sensitivity and connection between two people, as phenomena which bring about compatible contradictions. Can we be strong whilst relaxed? Heavy whilst light? Grounded whilst levitated, submissive whilst in control, a mixture of strength and weakness? Can we be dropped into the air? Humanity emerges and acrobatic prowess speaks between bodies. In a mixture of abandonment and accountability, this piece is as sensitive as it is beautiful.
Blurring the boundaries of dance, theatre and circus Joli Vyann take audiences on imaginative physical journeys, telling stories that excite, enchant and electrify.
Joli Vyann will also be running separate, ticketed workshops in hand to hand acrobatics. Details of these will be announced soon.
Commissioned by Without Walls, Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts and Winchester Hat Fair.
Co-commissioned by Bristol Harbour Festival and Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival.
