Programme Description

A much-toured classic on the European circuit, L’Immédiat is a unique project that fuses physical theatre, performance and circus. Often compared to Buster Keaton, Camille Boitel is joined by six performers to surprise audiences with a riotous reflection of modern times that is catapulted into reality by breathtaking physical skills, surrealist imagery, apocalyptic optimism and chaotic, collapsing set.

About 'L’Immédiat'

In the award-winning L’Immédiat by contemporary circus performer and stage virtuoso Camille Boitel, nothing is what it seems. A stage packed full of clutter; furniture, cardboard boxes, and ladders serves as a playground for performers to charge through, under and over, causing pieces of the junkyard-set to cave in around them. Chaos builds. A woman comes home and everything falls over. She hangs up her coat and the rack collapses, puts her bag on a table but its legs have been sawn through. Disaster continues to spread at a frenetic speed as the 7 young artists use their formidable physical abilities and comedy timing to defy the ruthless tsunami of destabilizing forces.


About Camille Boitel

Camille Boitel trained at Annie Fratellini's circus school in Paris, and in 2002 was a winner at the first 'Jeunes Talents Cirque', Europe's most prestigious new circus awards. He was an original member of James Thiérrée's Junebug Symphony Company and made his debut at the London International Mime Festival with the remarkable solo, 'L'Homme d'Hus' in 2005. L'Immédiat was awarded the 'Prix Mimos' in 2010.
