As night follows day and inhaling follows exhaling, this two man show spins around the stage in mesmerizing rotations. Through the ingenious use of lamp objects, the artists create an intimate and mysterious universe full of surprises, the expression of the body and technical mastery. «Respire» is a circular adventure that will take you into an acrobatic and poetic whirlwind, to the rhythm of the breath.
Maxime Pythoud and Alessandro Maida like to think of their bodies as a playground. Along with the pianist Lea Petra, they invent Circus techniques, dance and play together. They believe that when one stays honest, careful and open-minded, his irrationality, instinct and performance skills will push him further into our journey of discovering. And on stage, the experienced breathlessness leaves them no way of cheating.
