Featuring members of the legendary flying company Les Arts Sauts, Epicycle is a spectacular display of aerial and acrobatic arts that plays on and around an astounding metal structure – a giant ring 13m in diameter.
Within this towering circle exists a miniature universe inhabited by the ‘circle people’, or ‘cyclonauts’. Epicycle conjures the rhythm of their lives in a unique illustrative style, drawing inspiration from European comics and mixing in references to authors such as Bilal, Schuiten, Freud, Cobeyran, Cecil and Lebeault.
The Epicycle structure is designed by Side Up Concept, the outside eye for the show is choreographer and aerialist John-Paul Zaccarini. CirkVOST are based in Champclauson, France.
