Spider Circus - Fête des Lumières de Lyon
From 7th to 10th December 2017
Spider Circus is a new and wacky circus act, whose artists are spiders.
60 luminous spiders wove a giant canvas over the entire Sathonay Square and dance on their wires, above their audience. Will they appear here, or there ? They perform their number with astounding agility and address. A veritable light arachno-therapy, this work evokes with humor the paradoxical phenomenon of attraction and repulsion caused by spiders walking over visitors. This installation creates a link between sculpture and cinema, between animation and live performance by transforming the space in which the spectators move. Drum rolls ... Let the circus begin !
