La preuve par 3 is an aerial show performed by three women, with disciplines including vertical rope, slack rope, double cloud (static and swinging) – and inventive variations on these. The piece explores the identity of its performers as aerialists, looking particularly at the theme of trust – both the trust that exists between the artists on stage as well as the trust of the artists in their audience, their ropes and themselves.
The identities, stories and innermost fears and desires of the artists are explored through the ropes. With them they find the stories they want to tell – and the stories that must me told. Ropes will draw images and entangle the performers. Bodies will become entwined to the point where we don't know whose foot or arm is whose. Three strong women, who feel good in the air, will explore their inexplicable need to always climb higher, even though they know that gravity will always win. How does the relationship between them build to the point where they can put their lives in each other's hands?
