Cie L'Immédiat - Camille Boitel L'IMMÉDIAT
On a stage crammed with machinery, objects, junk and bric a brac of every kind, L'Immédiat is Camille Boitel's tumultuous, visual commentary on the uncertainty and mayhem of modern times.
In sixty minutes of beautifully orchestrated circus-theatre chaos, seven young acrobat-adventurers defy a tsunami of unstable forces that threatens to engulf them, with optimism, dark humour and breathtaking physical skills.
Camille Boitel trained at Annie Fratellini's circus school in Paris. In 2002 he was a winner at the first Jeunes Talents Cirque, Europe's most prestigious new circus awards. He was an original member of James Thierée's Junebug Symphony Company and made his debut at the Mime Festival with a remarkable solo, L'Homme d'Hus in 2005.
Created in 2007, L'Immédiat has toured throughout Europe and was awarded the Prix Mimos in 2010.
