Rouge Nord is a tightrope walking performance mixed with a cinematic setting about the relationship between man and machine. Rouge Nord immerses us in a cinematographic fresco on the border between Quentin Tarantino and Wim Wenders. High risk ancestral circus techniques rub shoulders with a bewitching mechanical universe.

Rouge Nord,
a feeling of confusion offered to passersby.
The sound of an engine arises and opens the door to action.
An unexpected scene takes place.
Moment suspended.
No, it’s not an accident
but the opening of a metallic color dream.
The public then witnesses the assembly of the live wire.

From our mechanical ballet.

The line is tense, the tightrope walker breathes.

An acrobat singer
A lost tightrope walker
A dilapidated crane truck
A mercedes from 1978
A crank phone booth
A live concert
45 minutes of drunkenness

“Mechanics is a joke, music a language.
Thread a dream, public space a pillar of expression.”
