Duo Les Flapjax
Techno blasts out as two scruffy steampunk clowns take the stage in slo-mo.
Their new acrobatic act, an aerial silk performance, features a main actor and a human counterweight. For the artist to fly, the counterweight has to do their part, but they’re a bit off track…
As things evolve here’s something Mad Max about the figures as they try to balance elegance and gravitational reality… Will their dignity hold out to the end of their act ?
