Director and choreograph Raphaëlle Boitel created Cie l’Oublié(e) in 2012. It is rooted in circus arts and includes elements of theatre, dance, visual arts, and cinema.
The company has created a unique language that combines physical theatre, choreography and acrobatics based on the connection between performers and mental or instinctive processes.
The company’s language is also highly visual and inspired by visual arts and cinema.
The company’s work tackle recurring themes such as solidarity, perseverance, animality, human relationships, engagement, moments of grace, letting go, challenging oneself.
The shows make the most of the three dimensions of space: performers inhabit the floor and the air. Each project is an opportunity to combine new artforms, create new circus apparatus or combine different acrobatic skills.
