They shoot angels, don't they ? - (elegies)

book tickets

It has now been for more than one thousand curtain raisers that Bartabas has remained in the shadows of his equestrian theater in Fort d’Aubervilliers. Intentionally obscured for three creations, he only appeared to wave at the audience, or to fool around, ridding a dunkey among the turkeys. Now, chanting mysterious elegies, he is back in the ring like a fallen archangel from his purgatory.

Because here, the angel’s sky is made of clay and the flights are bridled.
Even the Horse paradise isn’t quiet. Which messenger can we turn to, when the coven is constantly reversing, when the angels with the busted wings are returning into the breach?
Who can we trust, as we precariously walk above the volcano? What assumption can we believe in when punishment comes at the sound of grand organs?
With this new performance, the thirteenth in thirty years, Zingaro carries on his poetic and equestrian quest into the unknown.
Laughter goes often pacing in this chimera pit each time reinvented, where butcher looking clowns get jiggy with old tunes.

THEY SHOOT ANGELS, DON'T THEY ?
