As part of the Tilt Kids Festival, co-produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), celebrated French circus performer and director Camille Boitel, will present the U.S. premiere of ingenious contemporary circus performance, L'Immédiat, at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
In sixty minutes of beautifully orchestrated circus-theatre chaos, seven young acrobat-adventurers defy a tsunami of unstable forces with optimism, dark humor and breathtaking physical skills. L'Immédiat is a tumultuous visual commentary on the uncertainty and mayhem of modern times. Created by the award-winning Camille Boitel, a founding figure from James Thierrée’s Junebug Symphony Company, L'Immédiat was awarded the Prix Mimos in 2010.
Camille Boitel develops projects at the intersection of circus, magic, and contortion, creating a theater of objects and movement. After winning the inaugural Jeunes Talents Cirque (Young Circus Performer) Award in 2002, Camille Boitel created the company lamereboitel. He staged their first show,Man of Hus, before changing the company’s name to l'immédiat and creating an eponymous show.
