Inside a forest of helium balloons, a small balloon follows one of the artists, as if it was a little bird on a leash, learning how to fly. In the background, attached from the wrist to a bouquet of balloons, someone seems to be lifted up to the air.
In a peculiar and oneiric universe, populated with helium balloons, two artists dialogue with each other and with their objects. Far from being ordinary objects, the balloons have their own life. The artists seem to talk, and actually interact with the physical will of their own tools.
Combining object manipulation, juggling, acrobatics and physical theatre, with hints of puppeteering and magic, Lento is a research on risk, control, obsession and nostalgia.
With strong images and poetic situations, Cie Nuua invites the spectator to celebrate the miracle of flight.
