In this world where everything is accelerating, condensing and merging, Le G. Bistaki quietly invites us to withdraw physically and mentally. To withdraw calmly towards a Bel Horizon (a Beautiful Horizon).

Vast, rich in revealed or unsuspected diversity, deserving of many detours, everything begins with a slow procession. Relying on ourselves and others: let us each take a vase and walk. One thing leads to another. Celebrations, mutualisations, fights and improbable articulations: the journey is rich in discoveries for those who stop and go again and again. Along the way, the meaning of things is modified… Staging vases and swords and using a circus and choreographic language, the eight performers of Bel Horizon plunge us into the heart of a great epic with hybrid poetry.

Much more than a show, Bel Horizon is an experience that draws its singularity from the way it is presented. Whether it takes place at daybreak or at nightfall, after a long walk or in the heart of the city, each performance is unique and questions the place of the artistic gesture, the interdependence of a work with its environment, the links between artists, audiences and the performance itself.
