Creation autumn 2021 on earth - summer 2022 at sea

"Change is in the air! The wheel of fortune turns at last. Take stock of the situation, look back on your life before delving into a new search, a new path. Expect innovation, revolution. Stop coasting along and take the wheel of your life! Calm and patience are a necessity."
Les secrets du Tarot, la Roue de Fortune (Tarot secrets, Wheel of fortune)

On their own, in a duo or all together, five artists balance, run, jump and twist in a rotating metal apparatus known as the wheel of death. The metaphor of the passing of time is naturally very present. Putting oneself at risk physically is a challenge as well as a choice. This per- formance is a tribute to life and death, to traditional as well as modern circus, and to humankind in all its splendour and mistakes.

Two performances are being produced using the same apparatus but going through distinct creative processes: La Roue de l’Infortune (wheel of misfortune), on land; La Roue de l’Armor (wheel of Armor), on the water.
