Marie-Josée Lévesque is the only artist in Canada
to offer a Washington trapeze number, a circus discipline invented in
the 1800s by Kaye Washington.
this complex aerial act, the artist must balance him or herself on the
head on the trapeze bar, thanks to a small “headrest” screwed
down to the bar, and then launch into a series of balancing acts on the
hands or feet.
In her eight-minute number, Marie-Josée performs a breathtaking
choreography that puts her sense of balance, her flexibility and her physical
strength to the test, while expressing her passion for her art and her
joy of being a circus artist. Her performance is punctuated by the bewitching
rhythms of an African-inspired piece of music.
magnificent aerial testimony to the harmony between body and soul is perfectly
suited to all kinds of corporate or private events.
