125 BPM

125 BPM is a balance of time turned around, a ramshackle metronome. Set somewhere between the cosmic forces of orbiting bodies and a precarious relationship between two humans, this performance takes the artists to turn, breathe, fall, get up, find each other and seek a new balance, together.

Jean-Baptiste and Robin are in search of time, that primary force which pushes their discipline, the Cyr wheel, towards a harmonious balance of moving shapes. As the movement of the planets enforces our experience of time, the movement of the Cyr wheel enforces the time of 125 BPM.

Duration: 55min, all ages.
