Galapiat Cirque

Travel diaries

From September to November 2011, the Galapiat Company overstepped the boundaries between Argentina and Chile to perform Risque Zéro.

Émilie Bonnafous & Sébastien Armengol and Lucie Lemaître & Nelly Sabbagh from Des Figures relate the big trip in two travel diaries.
Interwoven portraits, both intimate and respectful of people met on the road, of the troupe travelling and each one’s personal interrogations. A set of two diaries, photographs and narrations.

Words and images woven into raw and tender stories, encounters…
