Foutoir Céleste

Cirque Exalté

[Création 2022]

«For Native Americans, Coyote is the god who comes and turns our lives upside down, pushing us towards our core desires.

Sometimes he just comes to tickle us gently, sometimes he is brutal and vicious, sometimes he is sly, sneaky and insistant. He finds things funny, especially when they happen to others…

Of course, he freaks everyone out. You don’t want to cross paths with the coyote, you don’t want to see him, you try to ignore him, you definitely don’t want to look him in the eye. But he couldn’t care less, he never gives up, he never lets go, he keeps coming back for you.

There he is, hidden in the things we find unbearable, the things we fear we will never get over. He is the sand in the gears, the spanner in the works, a violent kick in our cosy, safe cocoon. He’s a trickster, stirring up trouble in our lives over and over again, testing our limits and pulling us towards the sublime.

Today it’s the anniversary of his arrival on Earth.

Somewhere between a trance of consolation, a rite of passage and all-night partying, we invite you all, ladies and gentlemen, to join us in celebrating the birth of our Coyote God.»
