TearAway  F. noun. – A young person who behaves in an uncontrolled way and is often causing trouble. 

Imagine a few boxes dispatched on the stage – from which you’ll have to think out of. Imagine a trapeze that comes to life, at times as a friend, at others as an enemy. One quest:  to deconstruct the stereotypes conveyed by the aerial world, such as thinness, flexibility, elegance and sensuality. 

Tearaway is a mischievous show, an act of discontent as much as one of derision. Tearaway humorously erases the borders that society would like to draw between normality and marginality, but also those that separate the public from the artist on stage.

Suzon jumps out of the frame – completely and literally. On the trapeze,  she combines breakdance, vertical dance and zero gravity in an unusual and unprecedented manner.

A deep dive into the diary of someone in search of answers about identity, estheticism, about the body, and essentialism.

Lady or me is an ambivalent, dynamic and powerful Trapeze and Dance act. It combines circus lyricism with the brutal strength breakdance can display. In a word –  boum !

Curtain.
The show ends in applause. Under the noise of the claps fading out, I can hear myself breathing again – uh ! I quickly wipe out my face, take off the clothes.
I am finally one-on-one with the stage (what a bliss it is) ! I can choose now. 

Lady or me ? ….. Me !

Like riding a bike is a Cyr wheel act with a touch of sweetness. For once,  Proust’s madeleine is not to be eaten but to be watched and felt. A child’s play. 

Have you ever felt it ? Childhood nostalgia ? Have you dealt with the longing feeling of lightness and carefreeness ? I bet you did.

On stage, Suzon and her wheel banter and swing just like two kids would tease and play. Here, the stage represents a playground for frivolity and mischief where trust is being tested.

  • Show for all ages.

La solución dentro de ti is an act of weightless(ness).

Is this a Trapeze performance ? Is this a Vertical Dance act ? (principal infos)

In any case, it is a person who seems to be fighting against gravity just as one would fight against its own feelings to better control her emotions.

Because, here is the thing : I feel blocked, fixed, I am nothing but numb.  I am down in the dumps. In my paralysis, I cannot even hear the familiar voices of those who wish to bring me back to the surface. So I try to gain momentum, I back up, when I suddenly see it : this small door. It was just there, from the start. Right inside of me. 

I just needed to see it.
