Grey Ideas is a quest for absolute freedom, an attempt to let go of the conventional, and a celebration of the incongruous. It is an opportunity to destroy our rational thoughts and to let ourselves ramble towards the irrational. Bastien Dausse and François Lemoine, two young acrobats, writers, and performers from the company Barks, imagine a world free of the laws and logics that rule ours. Making up their own vocabulary to express their vision of the circus in each and every one of their creations, they have decided this time to unhinge the laws of time and space, to erase the border between what's real and what isn't, to playfully defy gravity, all the better to make us lose our bearings.
