Next Workshop:



The stilts are today a means of artistic expression recognized and expected by many professionals of the show. The rebound stilts, animated by a compressed air system, allow the confirmed wader to tackle a whole new mode of new and bold figures. This ultimate technology makes it possible to understand the balance on stilts in an even more spectacular way. The artist is less "rigid", the movements are faster (race), the choreography more precise.


The artist, the comedian, will increase his range of expression and propose new atypical and contemporary creations.
