Compagnie Virevolt


From 26 to 29 march

Création  Circus



Martin and Aurélie are two artists, an anchor and an acrobat, a man and a woman, life partners and work partners. Two lives that seem to blend into one but that share risks 50/50 every day. A couple from different backgrounds – one father a doctor, the other a boxer – raised with the same values of solidarity, equality, and commitment. For their third creation at Les Subsistances, Virevolt’s Lyon natives, still nestled between earth and sky, offer a very personal circus act where movement flows from the heart.

Aurélie Cuvelier-La Sala

Voltigeuse et danseuse inspirée par la spontanéité du geste et des émotions, elle élabore actuellement une réflexion sur sa pratique de circassienne. Elle trouve son expression artistique dans la création, la mise en mouvement de ses idées, la mise en espace de situations corporelles qui interroge la notion de relation, la rencontre des corps, la confiance dans le cirque, la beauté et parfois la violence de l’intimité.

Martin Cuvelier
An acrobat and anchor specialized in aerial arts, aware of the importance of music and staging to creation, he wonders about the place of the circus in the streets or on stage and uses his expertise in hanging methods and technical direction to design performance platforms. He is developing an energy-based circus practice, a physical and poetic body language.

La compagnie Virevolt

Aurélie and Martin Cuvelier-La Sala created Virevolt in 2001. After exploring “the in-between” in their first duet in 2003 – between two places, two people, two worlds – they wanted to further deveop their writing. Focusing their creations on issues of the ties and relationships created between people, they offer a language that combines circus arts with other forms and disciplines. They draw on various influences and encounters with other horizons (dance, climbing, archery, music, writing, etc.) to unlearn it all and reinvent every time. That gives Virevolt its color – the color of a contemporary circus. Their work is also aims to raise the awareness of a broad public, with a desire to share a fun circus accessible to everyone. Today, creating new pieces, disseminating repertory shows, and raising public awareness are Virevolt’s three main activities.
