Compagnie HMG10 Jan — 12 Jan
With a specially created new piece of circus equipment, the 3D, Guichard brings thrills up close as you have never before experienced. Constructed like a giant archer's longbow, the curved wooden board and metallic 'string' rocks, rolls and pivots in three dimensions at the will of its daring rider, producing an ever-changing musical soundscape that creates tension, awe and astonishment.
Inspired by innovative contemporaries including Aurélien Bory, Mathurin Bolze and Yoann Bourgeois, in whose groundbreaking shows he has appeared at the Barbican and Southbank Centre for LIMF, Guichard has produced a thrilling piece of visual theatre which plays with space and form, physical virtuosity and sound.
For this show Guichard has worked with Étienne Manceau, whose extraordinary Vu was a hit at Shoreditch Town Hall as part of LIMF ’18.
This original and exhilarating show is a treat for all ages.

"We loved this absolutely original show"
"In 3 dimensions and in 3 directions, 3D is in itself a mini-stage, exploring a playful relationship to matter, space, the other and sound"
