LA NUIT DU CERF
A Dear in the Headlights
« Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride! »
Hunter S. Thompson
After “The Elephant in the Room”, Cirque Le Roux presents its second chapter: “A Deer in the Headlights – La Nuit du Cerf”.
This original creation pulls from French New Wave, American grindhouse and 70’s independent cinema to tell a story of a family, loss and life through an eccentric and comical intrigue.
Miss Betty has died… Her three children gather at their rural family home in order to prepare for her funeral. However, the arrival of a mysterious stranger tips the scale and the newly reunited family is thrown into chaos.
“A Deer in the Headlights” features a gallery of surprising, charismatic, funny and flamboyant characters. A work which highlights the singularity, fragility and tenderness of all human relations.
Six virtuosi circus artists perform handstands, hand to hand, banquine, acrobatics and tight-wire acts, blending physical risk with emotional depth and humor.
“A Deer in the Headlights” is an homage to cinema, contemporary circus, and to the human condition, with all its comedy, awkwardness and splendor.
