Wangari makes his circus: Mr. O

Cie CaKtus

30 mins / For all / Saison culturelle

  • Graphic manipulation


It is in the heart of the 20th, just next to the Porte de Montreuil, that the first center of animation dedicated to the circus arts sees the day in September 2014.

Meet Monsieur Ô at the Paris Anim’ Wangari Maathai center as part of “Wangari fait son cirque”, an event open to all to “live the circus”.

Mr O

Mr. O, a dry man with boundless energy, struggles with his red hoops to overcome his loneliness. A hoop allows you to wiggle your buttocks, of course, and lots of beautiful things without any doubt. It is mostly a circle, so it can drive you slightly crazy. In this short, funny and absurd piece, manipulation becomes dance, dance becomes a game, and Mr. O, by dint of his agitation, becomes as red as the hoops. This little world is simply going in circles.


The company

The CaKtus company was founded in 2001 around three artists: Victor Stoïchita, musician, Sylvain Julien, juggler and Julien Tauber, storyteller.
