Two young women, different yet partners, rivals, and dependent on each other: a carrier and an acrobat. An almost empty stage: a trapeze, a mat, a stool. Between them? A desire to possess the other, to be the other, to control the other? A phase in the first show by this duo from Lyon, fresh from the National Center for Circus Arts (CNAC).


With: Coraline Léger (porteuse) et Laura Colin (voltigeuse)


Born in 1989, Coraline Léger began studying circus arts at ETAC, the amateur circus school in Bourg-en-Bresse (1996/2007), when she was just a child. She went on to attend the Balthazar circus prep school in Montpellier (2007/2008), specializing in the trapeze, then passed the entrance exam for ENACR (School for Circus Arts in Rosny-sous-Bois, 2008/2010), where she met Laura Colin, who became her acrobat.

Laura Colin was born in Lyon in 1989. In 2001 she took her first steps as an artist by joining the Subterfuge company, directed by Laureline Gelas, in contemporary hip-hop. She took part in a number of creations until 2007, when she discovered the world of the circus during an acrobatics workshop. She went to the circus prep school in Lyon, where she specialized in aerial silk, then passed the entrance exam and attended ENACR (2008/2010), where she met her partner, Coraline Leger.

Together, they began working together on the trapeze as well as on the floor. Karine Noël, a contemporary dance teacher at ENACR, directed them in their research and helped them develop their own style. From 2010 to 2012 they attended the National Center for Circus Arts in Châlons-en-Champagne (CNAC), where they perfected and decided on their artistic identity, with the help of Valérie Dubourg (circus artist), Mathieu Desseigne (dancer and acrobat), Damien Fournier (Circassian dancer), Fabrice Champion (circus artist and director), Joël Suty (circus artist), Johanne Saunier (dancer choreographer), etc. In 2013, training ended with the Pulsions tour, directed by Laurent Laffargue of the Cie du soleil bleu. Since then they created Compagnie CORLAO and are presenting a draft creation for a short form blending floor work and trapeze: DuElle.
