Hay Que [Belgium]

Three human beings are launched into the time and space of a podium.

CREATION – Spring 2021

Did these three characters escape from a comic book ? One of Magritte’s paintings ? The open space of an office where the employees’ uniform comprises a black suit and a white shirt ? Or are they simply three circus artists attempting to paint a no-frills portrait of our crises, our dreams, our endeavors ?

They struggle, run, jump but never make it very far. How can they go forward together, without dragging each other down ?

Have you ever heard water vibrating in a meditation bowl ? Witnessed the endless fall of Euler’s disk ? Used your chest as a sound box ? Foucauld, Natalia and Vanina got their inspiration from physics experiments where their bodies are playing the role of weights, circus equipment and pieces of machinery. They’re toying with gravity, levitating, staying in constant motion thanks to air, water and, of course, the Chinese pole, the flying pole and the trapeze.

In Résonance, we find ourselves somewhere between fiction and reality, excess and silence, speeding up and slowing down, the violence of social interaction and the profound joy of being together. Resonating and reasoning with the public, through physical action and sound friction, Hay Que takes us elsewhere and back.

Why not offer ourselves the precious moment of a smiling silence, in collective connivance ?

Hay Que

Can people be part of a « new » circus collective and at the same time know each other intimately ?

Yes, of course ! This is the impressive feat that Foucauld Falguerolles, Vanina and Natalia Fandiño have managed to pull off together.

Résonance is their first piece as a trio. However, they have been working, creating and researching together for many years. The members of this young collective with a long history have built and rebuilt their physical and artistic complicity through a wide variety of group projects and circus duos.

Born and raised in Argentina (Vanina and Natalia) and France (Foucauld), these three met in Brussels, where they founded a family – both in the artistic and literal sense – almost 15 years ago.

They’ve mesmerised audiences all around the globe within the Welsh collective NoFit State but also their own internationally acclaimed, award-winning duos that have allowed them to expand their artistic language and sharpen the group’s synergy.

A strong artistic alchemy thus emerged between trapezist Natalia, tightrope walker Vanina and « machinist » Foucauld.

Their impressive off-road trip also includes a stint within the collective Feria Musica as well as numerous solo creations in which they respectively provide feedback to each other.

The conception of Résonance, whose name evokes the trio’s impressive complicity, can be seen as a natural evolution of this intense relationship. The project, their first creation as a collective, is carried by a spontaneous alertness to each other’s physical, moral and intellectual needs, refined through their years and journeys together.
