UNE PELLE

Olivier Debelhoir

"I started the tightrope walker ten years ago, the first thing I was made to do is walk behind an experienced tightrope walker. I held his shoulders and followed him, giving him my full confidence and sharing my feelings with him. I want to put this place in dialogue and on stage because it is magnificent, ”writes Olivier Debelhoir.


His new project, Une pelle, is first of all the story of two friends who embark on an expedition that is both poetic and burlesque: a common ascent on a cable thirty meters long, ascending
ten meters from the ground. Soon, the first takes its pendulum in hand while the second clings to it.


Together, they set out to conquer this strange mountain of steel, with the sky and the words for the horizon.
