In XNUMX, Jean-Baptiste André presented a performance called ``FLOE,'' in which he performed on the artwork of sculptor Vincent Lamoureux.
This work, which is intended to be performed outdoors, encounters landscapes and people, and is led further toward the horizon.
Purely, without any pretense, ``Froe'' confronts the body with space.

Once again, a man confronts things that protrude from the horizon.
For peace of mind, he has no choice but to cross.

Exploration of this unknown land depicts a single movement.
A man appears and disappears in the unevenness of the sculpture.

The finely honed movements are like poetry, and time stands still.
The audience takes risks along with the man and tries to surpass himself.

Jean-Baptiste dreamed of taking Floet beyond Europe.
With our attachment to Japan, the connections we have made over the years, and our desire to collaborate, in collaboration with Setouchi Circus Factory, we finally passed on the choreography to a Japanese acrobatic artist and created this work in Japan. I had a chance to bloom.
