    creators : Nathan Israël and Luna Rousseau | conception and interpretation: Nathan Israël, Laureate of the Prix d’Encouragement SACD for Juggling creativity | director, dramaturgy, staging and voice-off: Luna Rousseau | text : Claude Louis-Combet | original score: Théó Girard | original lighting: Patrice Besombes | thanks to Vincent Maire
    The mud man is a figure, a myth. He is in every one of us – the primal being, always struggling, to live, to stand, to speak; the juggler who keeps throwing when everything falls, the tree that keeps growing whilst everything around sinks.
    An intense physical performance that turns towards those existential feelings we often keep distant: solitude of the soul, our terror of falling and the disturbing desire to return back to mud. Sculptural, sensuous, dark and humorous.
    Le Jardin des Délices is a circus company established by Nathan Israël and Luna Rousseau. They are both creators, one on stage, the other as director. The company uses humour while working with the figure of a monster which can be interpreted as the individual who does not fit to norm - in a way, that is the true definition of a circus artist.

    A chance encounter between two acrobats; a frustrated lover and a jilted dreamer. This is the story of two hearts making sense of perfection. The Knot is the invisible string that connects two people. Sometimes strong, sometimes just about to break, it is the complex yet simple bond that we juggle with our whole lives. This piece follows the journey of individuals through the absurdity, joy and mundanity of making things work. Acrobatics, movement and storytelling combine to expose the hopes we hold for the ideal lover, while also speaking about the experiences of members of the LGBT+ community.
    Nikki & JD was established as an artistic partnership and hand-to-hand duo in 2013. Knot was a winner of the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Circus 2019 and Herald Angel Award 2019, and runner up for the prestigious Carol Tambor Best of Fringe Award.
