Chinese Pole … Circus … Music … Dance … Percussion … Kalaripayattu …
Via is a live musical sheet which adapts to the interpretation of the moment,to be receptive and responsive to perform the pieces according to the present time.
Places, audience, climate, bodies of the artists are living and moving materials. Being in harmony with all these elements is a delicate work which enables to create a true connection with the audience. The latter is then led to listen and watch carefully, to move closer, to arouse their senses until they possibly reach the limits of the return to themselves and to the world.
Thus, despite its written shape, each performance of Via is unique and living.
Via is a mix of Asian and western percussion, Chinese pole, Kalarippayattu martial arts, dance, circus and song, performed by French and Indian artists.
