A spectacle of “impossible love” by French avant-garde circus genius, Camille Boitel

According to performance artist Camille Boitel, the concept for his new work “間―MA” is an epic tale of unfulfilled love. This “spectacle of impossible love” unfolds in a kaleidoscopic mix of slapstick comedy, nostalgic “magic lantern” slide projection and fierce romantic struggles in the realism theatre vein. Together with his creative partner Sève Bernard, Boitel has created a number of scenes in short “etude” format that can be performed at an accelerated pace. This performance also involves two Japanese artists, Boitel’s long-time friend the sho player Tokiko Ihara, and renowned architect June Aoki, who appear on stage in Boitel’s piece “An Encounter Through Poetry.” This performance is a tryout displaying the creative processes involved in “間―MA,” slated for its world premiere in 2019.

*This performance will be held as part of Tokyo Festival 2018
