Château Descartes
© Enricco Bartolucci

Six acrobats create a whole universe from a hundred school chairs in this ambitious piece, where the awkward wooden props become, through the movements and manipulations of the performers, an immersive stage set. Nothing seems certain as the cast move through the labyrinth of chairs, sometimes blindfolded, sometimes on roller skates, sometimes catapulted through the air. The narrative isn't always clear, but there's plenty of humour and inventiveness here to keep you on the edge of your (rather more stable) seat.
