Raphaëlle Boitel is a well-known circus artist, highly skilled in aerial, object manipulation and dance. She has worked with James Thiérrée and Company 111. The Forgotten / L’Oublié(e) is her highly anticipated first show as a director.
The Forgotten / L’Oublié(e) is a fairy tale. A woman waits for a man, who has been asleep for years, to wake up. She plunges herself into his mind to find him. Her quest takes her into his dreams; a parallel world of hallucinations and fantastical situations. Combining circus, physical theatre and dance Raphaëlle creates a mesmerizing and visually arresting world through which she explores memory, absence and reminiscence.
