"L’Immédiate" is a surprising combination of new circus, dance and theatre. In this formidable masterpiece, six characters try to find their way on a stage covered with hundreds of large and small objects. As they advance, literally everything collapses around them in an incredible cascade of catastrophes. A disturbing, yet hilarious view on a world on the brink of disaster.
Camille Boitel is considered by some European critics a genius in the field of object theatre and new circus, he develops an unusual scenic writing, comic, intimate and direct, developing work on the object manipulation. His physical work blends under different technical tools, such as acrobatics, pantomime or dance. With "L'Immediate", a hybrid between circus and burlesque object theatre, Boitel firms himself with a fantastic aesthetic and humor.
Camille Boitel is an acrobat, a dancer, an actor, a musician, a real circus performer. Trained at the famous school run by Annie Fratellini, Camille Boitel was awarded at the first edition of Jeunes Talents Cirque. Boitel created "L'Homme de Hus" in 2003 and performed in France, amongst other countries. "L'Immediate", a show full of energy and with a subtle humor, evokes topical issues such as the consumer society, the individual's place within society and the relationship with time. The works of Boitel reveal a fiction cleverly orchestrated, but always with happiness.
