Artists die too. A lion-tamer can be eaten by Lions. An acrobat can break his neck doing a triple summersault. The appendix of «La merveilleuse histoire du cirque» by Hénry Thétard, published in 1947, neatly chronicles where and when and how circus performers died and in which circus the tragic events occurred.

The stories inside compel an actor, a musician and three other artists to think about the risks of their profession, about what happens when things don’t go as they are supposed to. What does one do when serious mistakes happen? When you have already fallen.

The performance is a journey of discovery for the five artists, a quest to find answers.
