  A duet balancing between traction & attraction

‘Cuir’ is a duet on the notions of traction and attraction. In a powerful body-to-body confrontation, two harnessed men play at manipulating each other’s bodies. The cautious pleasure they take in transforming each other into an instrument, an apparatus, a playground or a battlefield engages them in a struggle with mutual consent. Between traction and attraction, they do not aim for power over the other, but rather power with the other.

Circus company Un loup pour l'homme aims, through its approach of acrobatic hand to hand balancing, at defending a vision of humanity made up of social individuals, as different as they are dependent from each other. The origins of Un loup pour l’homme lie in the encounter between two acrobats: French base Alexandre Fray and flyer Frédéric Arsenault. Since 2006, Un loup pour l'homme has performed around 600 (!) shows: ‘Appris par corps’ (2006), ‘Face Nord’ (2011), ‘Rare Birds’ (2017), the female version of ‘Face Nord’ (2018), ‘Cuir’ (2020) and ‘Projet Grand-mère’ (2021).
