Two women approach a complex architecture of floating wires and stretched steel arms. They decide to climb it. Undaunted by some unsuccessful attempts, playing their skill they escape, cling and climb. On the sensitive strings of the violin, with gambols and sliding splits, the accomplices dance with tenderness and jest. This duo is that of a mother and her daughter recounting the canvas of a family and circus history, a quest for balance, and weaving the thread of universal trust that connects women to each other. In the press: „Placed in the corner of a park, on a street corner, in the middle of a square or sometimes elsewhere, this strange sculpture-rig imagined by the troupe opens the imagination and lends itself to all games. Agathe Olivier and Coline Rigot take this mother-daughter dialogue to perfection and enhance the breath-taking virtuosity with humour and tenderness.” (La Terrasse - September 2015 - G. David)
