About the show


A door opens and two worlds collide. Enter the attic of make-believe, where the mundane meets the marvellous. Dreams and nightmares intertwine. La Nouba which calls on both individual and collective memory, is an unforgettable journey into a world at once threatening and exhilarating, frightening and familiar. La Nouba beckons to us, challenges us to uncover passions we thought we had lost long ago; to frolic in our childhood dreams and enter a place where the extraordinary transforms and overcomes the ordinary.

La Nouba is the meeting of two worlds poles apart: the fantastic world of the circus artists - the Cirques (circus people), sporting bright, fluorescent colours–and that of the Urbains (urbanites), who wear dark, monochromatic outfits. When these two worlds first make contact, the magic and amazing feats of the one set fire to the pale mundanity of the other.

What the media say about the show

La Nouba is a spectacle more visceral than intellectual. An 11-year old boy in the audience seemed to sense as much. As the crowd filed out of the auditorium at the end of the show, his father asked him how he liked it. “My throat hurts,” he answered. “Why?” asked the father. “I think, I forgot to breathe,” said the boy.”
The Orlando Sentinel

“Dazzling costumes, dramatic lighting, bizarre choreography, and music set the stage for clownish observes, a human puppet, Rene Magritte-inspired scenery and a host of amazing acrobatic acts".”

Florida Today

“The hottest thing under the Orlando Soleil.”
