Following its wish to develop a contemporary circus in India, Compagnie Distil presents to you its latest project, Analemma – a modern circus performance. This piece aims at reviving the art of juggling by bringing together French and Indian artists and exploring the endless possibilities of this playful circus skill with a modern approach, making it a unique and first-of-a-kind experience. Based in Puducherry, Compagnie Distil was founded by French artist Romain Timmers along with the Indian movement artist Sharanya Rao. Romain Timmers is both a dancer and a contemporary circus artist. He graduated as a circus artist from the Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque in Brussels. Also, he trained in Vertical Dance with Retouramont Company, a pioneer in the art form. In this latest creation, the company observes the path of the sun (commonly known as ‘the Big fireball’ by scientists and jugglers), only to find out about one of the greatest symbols of existence and the mysteries attached to it.
