Galactik Ensemble develops situational acrobatics, i.e. the precise relationship between a rugged environment and man’s ability to adjust to it. Their approach is about bringing into play the individual as well as the group in front of a real unpredictability, a risky situation.
They first experiment that short moment when we loose control, from dodging and falling to re-establishing balance. This engagement – that requires a complete investment, where supports are missing, where the body adapts and becomes distorted to maintain its integrity – allows the emergence of singular movements. They arise in and from disequilibrium, thus creating a theatricality that we want to question, intensify, and stage.
Galactik Ensemble wishes to show acrobatics not any longer as an elegant manner to challenge gravity but as a capacity to test unpredictability.
