Stifle the giggles – the name of this performance isn’t meant to make you blush, nor to boost hits on search engines, but is instead a reference to the visual motif of verticality that recurs throughout its 45 minutes. The athlete Pierre Rigal and the pantomime artist Aurélien Bory, no strangers to extreme physical states, have teamed up to explore the limits of the human body’s malleability. As they stand, stretch and toss themselves about, their bodies interact with lighting cues to generate wonderful optical illusions. Have we aroused your interest yet?
