Transcending the wall between audience and performer…

Attending a Vau de Vire event is akin to stepping into an interactive Circus where all layers of pretension are discarded at the door. The 2-dimensional wall between audience and performer are shattered by VdV artists frequently emerging amongst the crowd performing roaming vignettes. The audience and performer become a single force, creating an art-filled environment providing all in attendance a safe-haven to indulge fantasies of running away with the circus, if even for the night.
