Pouf

Where can you find pillow trees? In a child bedroom, or in a garden, or somewhere between. And between, there is an imaginary yard where balls and bolsters fly for the best or the worse. "Pouf!" makes the ball when it crashes in the juggler's hand or... on the floor. Unless it's the big bolster hit that you are taking... or giving?

Between softness and violence, between «pillow-fight» et «mellow passing», Pouf explores the contradictions in juggling and balance with soft props.

Pouf was perform more than 50 times between september 2009 and september 2011.
