About: Du goudron et des plumes

One of today's most original young circus creators – French artist Mathurin Bolze – returns to the Barbican with this highly physical production: Du Goudron et des Plumes.

In a performance of both tension and brilliance, five strangers are thrown together on a pitching rolling vessel adrift somewhere between earth and sky and must fight to stay afloat.

Bolze explores friendship, cooperation and trust through breathtaking acrobatics and an ingenious set. Don’t miss it.
