The Kid Should See This

La mécanique de l’Histoire, an acrobatic performance by Yoann Bourgeois

Watch more with these video collections:

A trampoline sits at the center of a turning wooden staircase. Four figures climb, fall, and somehow float back into their places on the stairs as if in slow motion. They climb again until only one figure is left to defy gravity.

This is La mécanique de l’Histoire (The Mechanics of History) at le Panthéon in Paris, a co-production with Théâtre de la Ville. The acrobatic installation by dancer Yoann Bourgeois was part of the third edition of Monuments en mouvement, an annual pairing of dance events within monuments around France.
