Les animaux perdus

In ‘Les animaux perdus’ the animal circus revives in a contemporary way, with a nod to this vanished circus culture. We immerse the spectator in a total experience where poetic visual installations, circus disciplines and classical music go hand in hand.

The visitors will encounter various circus animals and their trainers in a theatrical installation: a dancing pink flamingo, a fire-breathing hippopotamus, a sad elephant and... What’s their story? 

The music is inspired by Le Carnival des Animaux from 1866, by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns.
