LE PETIT CIRQUE

Laurent Bigot

France
Sound performance, 30 min, nonverbal

A table-top circus whirs with sounds. Scratching and grinding, rumbling and whistling. Electro-acoustic ringmaster Laurent Bigot’s “circus of sound” is small in the truest sense of the word. With cheap gadgets made out of wood, plastic, wire, springs, recycled toys and twelve tiny microphones, the circus’s fragile actors are in a permanent, random state of movement: magnetic animals, spinning tightrope artists – the mechanical inhabitants of this universe are the barely controllable protagonists of a live concert in which the fusion of sound, imagery and scenography result in an unbroken sequence of frenzied activity.


The composer and musician Laurent Bigot has long been interested in the relationships music can create with other artistic fields as well with its surroundings and themes of everyday life. For many years he has been working on sound objects in which music and scenography coexist, clash with, or directly influence each other. He develops his ideas in collaborative projects with musicians, dancers, filmmakers, playwrights, actors and visual artists.
