About La Prairie des Talons
La Prairie des Talons is the the Capstone Circus Project from the graduating class of NECCA’s ProTrack, pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus theater. Working with internationally renowned director Paúl Gomex, the talented acrobats, aerialists, jugglers and movers poised to burst upon the world stage, reflect on the collective quest of a generation in search of meaning and identity. It is an ode to the impermanence of life, and to this turbulent, COVID-challenged, rapidly changing world.
This production uses strobe lights and contains some mature content including gestures and language.
Paúl Gomex is a Venezuelan-American pluridisciplinary performer and director. He is the founder of Clowns Without Borders Switzerland and 406Cirque, the Circus School of Bozeman, Montana.
