Bekkrell efekt

Four women and a lot of smoke, delving deeply, they make serious yet whimsical encounter.

At the beginning there was their encounter, in 2009, at the CNAC (National Center of Circus Arts, France). Dazzling and exhilarating. This encounter generated a small tentacular production of 20 minutes very much to the taste of our compeers and which propelled them 4 years later into the wonderful meanderings of collective creation. And so here we are. Effet Bekkrell (Bekkrell Effect) sees the day.

What it's about... On the subsurface a strange fascination for radioactivity or what causes instability in matter and in relationships. On the surface, cables, strings, ropes, a board, four women and a lot of smoke, Delving deeply, they make serious yet whimsical encounters. After numerous attempts, they take a stance for perpetually changing lifestyles, precarious but precious. And they slide from steady to unsteady states, from clashes to negotiations, from utopias to disillusions... During 1 hr.

"The Bekkrell Effect is an exhilarating visual feast combining the power of punk with risk and flare. (...) Part riot-grrrl pop song, part circus spectacle The Bekkrell Effect is an energising experience. Inspired by physicist Henri Becquerel’s discovery of radioactivity, French company Groupe Bekkrell have created an unstable universe of perpetual movement where matter decays and bonds disintegrate. Powered by the strength of its performers and driven with the momentum of a gig at the end of the world, it is at once comic and revealing."

The show is realized with the support of the French Institute in Prague.
