Experience
Solo Trapeze


Anne Lepage combines agility, great technical difficulty, and acrobatic movements as the Flounes look on, fascinated.

A wonderfully lit and choreographed trapeze performance by Anne Lepage in which the music sets the emotions of this piece. First, she takes to the stage and is lifted towards her trapeze to "Fixe", an emotional set played on Cello by Robert Stanley. A loneliness seems to fill the universe until Ms. Lepage reaches her perch atop the big top. "Ballant" then fills the air, and she begins her long swing into the void. Once her flight is complete she descends to the stage, and with it "Baleines" begins to play.

"Fixe" means "fixed" or "Set" in French, as in the trapeze bar is not moving. "Ballant" can be translated to "dancing", but in this case the trapeze bar and performer begin to swing. "Baleines", strangely enough - or perhaps not so strangely - translates to "Whales", which is exactly what sounds you are hearing being mimicked in the song.
