Camille Boitel's L’IMMÉDIAT at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts
L’IMMÉDIAT (N.Y. Premiere)
L’Immédiate March 9 – 13, 2016
On a stage crammed with machinery, objects, junk and bric-a-brac of every kind, L’Immédiat (2012) is a tumultuous visual commentary on the uncertainty and mayhem of modern times. In sixty minutes of beautifully orchestrated circus-theater chaos, seven young acrobat-adventurers defy a tsunami of unstable forces with optimism, dark humor and breathtaking physical skills.
Created by the award-winning performing artist Camille Boitel, an original member of the renowned mime and physical theater artist James Thierrée’s Junebug Symphony Company, L’Immédiat has toured successfully throughout Europe and was awarded the Prix Mimos Prize at the 2010 Mimos international festival of mime and physical theater. siparhasard.com/index.php?/les-spectacles/limmediat

Tickets: $35 – $65
