    Les Colporteurs, Les Etoiles

    The poetry of the wire. Les Colporteurs are, simply, the world's finest tightwire company – specialists, masters, artisans who go deep into the mechanics of their discipline while simultaneously mining its expressive potential as a poetic metaphor. Their willingness to use their closest personal experiences to shape the work they make can be seen in the love story they use to explain the company's origin, and, as well, in Antoine Rigot's Sur la route..., a solo about retraining his body for the wire following a dreadful accident.
