Project #1 / The missing part (2015)
About the film
The man, the woman and the daughter. The life we have been given to live out there. Inside, a theatre. A place that serves as a stage and a catalyst for change. Art understood as what it is: a tool for freedom. Animals as characters that remind us what is essential, the origin, the reason. A horse and a bird to help us think like children once again.
A brief journey, a passage to take us outside again, but going out in a different way.

About the creator
This French-Catalan company blends circus and dance and conceives each project as a sound and physical score, like a painting, an immersion…. a push towards the boundary between intimacy and the heroic deed. Their languages are movement, acrobatics, through their dedication to the body and daily training.
The starting point for their shows is often a stage design that questions the role of the audience in the space. Horses form part of the life and work of this company. A method that awakens instinct, a sense of improvisation, and pushes the artists and the audience towards the ‘here and now’.
Baro d’Evel has won international acclaim with numerous awards, such as the National Circus Prize of Catalonia. The company, which is based in Lavelanet-de-Comminges, receives support from the Midi-Pyrénées Regional Department of Culture and the Midi-Pyrénées Regional Council. They regularly collaborate with Temporada Alta, co-producing various shows Regional de Cultura de Midi-Pyrénées i del Consell Regional Midi-Pyrénées.
