A curious ballet of white balls takes over the stage. Bathed in candlelight and guided by the notes of a string quartet, three jugglers join the proceedings and attempt to pierce their mysteries.

In sheer darkness, a noise is heard. Then a faint light flickers, revealing a stage graced by clusters of candles that conjure a Baroque ballroom atmosphere, and a peculiar ballet of white balls. Three jugglers in frock coats, following their own rhythm or the melodies of a string quartet, bid to pierce the mysteries of these objects, which clearly have a mind of their own. As if spurred by their own life-force, the balls take flight, hang in the air, fall from the sky and mischievously vanish and reappear, creating a stream of swirling movements. After Pan-Pot ou modérément chantant, the scalable collective Petit Travers is back in trio form, accompanied by the magician Yann Frisch. In this NUIT for all ages, tinged with humour and melancholy, Nicolas Mathis, Julien Clément and Rémi Darbois drawn on all the virtuoso flair of their juggling art to celebrate the creative power of accidents.
