Sunday was the last day of performances for the 31st Festival Cirque Actuel here in Auch. I only had one show programmed – La Mondiale Générale with « Le Gros Sabordage » this was due to be performed in the studio which I was convinced was jinxed after a short series of really dull shows…
However it seems the jinx has been lifted – thank goodness. I went in early, as much to chat to the artists to help me choose the best position, as to just say ‘Hello’ as I think I can say I’m friends with this troupe – we’ve experienced residences and shows together before, and I like them a lot.
This show was an extended version of one I’d seen and photographed before – but when I met Marie and Alex they told me that virtually everything had changed, and not to expect to see what had gone on before…ah ha – a surprise?
And it was brilliant – a couple of quiet moments, but on the whole a very good performance…and I’m quite pleased with the resulting images.
A great end to an intense week.
