• Toron Blues: Tendre Suie

    Toron Blues, Tendre Suie

    As we all know and have objectively agreed, corde lisse is the king of circus disciplines, sitting on a marvellous golden throne while the lesser skills simper and genuflect. So! Pay special attention to Toron Blues' Tendre Suie, a piece devised by two rope specialists, Clémentine Lamouret and Elsa Caillat, who met and trained at the French National Circus School in Chalons. Based on Jean-Paul Sartre’s Huis Clos it uses a single rope as the site of a wordless drama, the two women clambering and falling over one another – stuck together – with nowhere else to go.
