WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts will present the New York premiere of French artist, dancer, actor, and acrobat Camille Boitel's critically acclaimed spectacle L'immédiat, an absurd chaos at the crossroads of theater, circus and physical performance. There will be post-performance discussions with the artists on March 10 and 11. L'immédiat is presented as part of the Inaugural Tilt Kids Festival, a cultural festival for families.
On a stage crammed with machinery, objects, junk and bric-a-brac of every kind, L'immédiat is a tumultuous visual commentary on the uncertainty and mayhem of modern times. In sixty minutes of circus-theater mayhem, seven acrobat-adventurers defy a tsunami of unstable forces with optimism, dark humor and breathtaking physical skills. L'immédiat is appropriate for adults and children ages 8 and up.
