James Thierrée is one of those rare multi-talents whose art can only be very inadequately described by the usual descriptions such as performer, author, musician, acrobat, film actor and director. With his Compagnie du Hanneton, the Swiss-born artist creates a special kind of circus concert in which, in addition to comedy and acrobatics, music with baroque intermezzi, rock and ghostly electro sounds and language are the driving forces. The scenes, some hair-raising, some dazzlingly funny, seem to be improvised and often enough seem to end in total loss of control and chaos. In reality, of course, the charismatic artist masters them perfectly: the orchestration of instruments, bodies, curiosities and spoken word, united in dance and theatricality.
