At Galapiat Cirque, wenever miss out on the opportunity to party!
Therefore and quite naturally we started organising events…
The idea consists in getting together with our friends, those met on the road, making some new, setting up new projects with the hundreds of volunteers that support us, and try our hand at programming, realising the amount of workitis to host our friends artists properly, treatingthem the way we want to be treated.
Tant qu'il y aura des Mouettes (As long as there will be seagulls)
"Galapiat’s first festival", Tant qu’il y aura des Mouettes, presented artists that we met on the road. Programming was in the hands of the compagnie Galapiat (Elice, Seb A, Moïse, Jonas, Lucho, Seb W) with the support of the rest of Risque Zéro team (Luc, Gautier, Marine and later on Nolwenn) while Lucile supervised the coordination.
Step by step, it became bigger and bigger, Risque Zéro stopped and it all went on as the songsays.
The 8th festival in 2016 gathered more than 5000 spectators!
Then there was VILLE DEBOUT. The event is classified into "local projects" because it was conceived, organised and coordinated by Alain and François (development officers in Brittany), the organisation Des Figures and the People of Ville Debout (friends from Langueux les Grèves and beyond).
VILLE DEBOUT took place one Sundaya month, from January to June 2012. The event did not continue for lack of time by the organising team and the artists…
The latest is Cirque & Mer.
Yves-Marie is a friend oyster-farmer in Plougrescant whom we met in Brittany. He started jumping on the teeterboard with us and grew fond of it so he looked in to it more closely, etc.
Until one day he announced us he wanted to organise an event, a combination of both his worlds: the sea and the circus. Voilà!
Lots of motivation, loads of enthusiasm and energy we love to share and experience with others!
That’s why we also set up events at Galapiat Cirque…
