LA cie SID

The SID Company is a emerging contemporary circus company, created by acrobatic and aerial cradle duo Antoine and Ines, following their graduation from L’Acadamie Fratellini in July 2016. They completed their studies with a duo cradle act: LA FEMME CHIFFON. This act, filled with black comedy, questions with derision the idea of “The show must go on!”

Shortly after the establishment of the company, Charles Dubois, sound technician and engineer, joined them for their first full length creation: L’IRONIE D’UN SAUT, a production auspiced by Coopérative De Rue et De Cirque (The Street and Circus Co-operative). This work is an interactive and aerial circus piece, for all-terrains (theatre, big-top, street), based on the idea of resilience, or  “gaining strength through trauma”. They were accompanied in the mise en scene by Michel Cerda, Françoise Lepoiz and Stefano Gilardi. In October 2017, Clément Zout Deys joined them for their lighting design. Since March 2019 Read Medjahed has taken on the role of Charles Dubois.

Since December 2017 the company has been based in Bourg-Saint-Andeol, where Ines and Antoine both live at La Cascade, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque d’Ardèche Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.

Their second creation, CONTRE-TEMPS will be released the 15th of November 2020 at the Théâtre de Vals-Les-Bains, Centre Culturel Les Quinconces (07).

Artistic Vision

Antoine and Inès, who, after soon to be 8 years of creation and aerobatics together, have constructed for themselves a universe existing somewhere between reality and fiction. They base their acts, trials, shows around different themes. But each time the audience is bought into an unstable zone, which, sometimes disturbs, but ultimately questions the real. They don’t want to create circus in which the circus technique is “stuck-on” to an artistic proposition, but in which an artistic proposition is infused into the technique. Working in this way means that their physical capacities are used to serve what they want to share with the audience.

The aerial cradle holds a central place in their approach to performing. Even so, they search each time to blend this practice with different medias. Using materials coming from dance,  as well as from theatre. They have created for themselves a repotoire of movement and are always searching for new movement qualities on the cradle.

Inès Maccario

Inès began studying circus professionally upon graduating high school. During these studies, she was a part of a number of creations with Pierre Meunier, Patrick de Valette, Mourad Merzouki at L'Acadamie Fratellini. At the completion of her studies, in 2017, she created L’ironie d’un saut (The irony in leaping) with Antoine Deheppe. Between March 2017 and October 2019 she collaborated with and replaced other artists in several companies: le Cirque Rouage in ...SODADE... (30 performances), Les Pe-tits Bras (3 performances) and with la compagnie Rasposo dans la DévORée (25 performances).

Marie Guibert

Voltigeuse en cadre aérien, après une longue pratique de trapèze fixe amateur, elle tombe follement amoureuse du cadre aérien à Arc en Cirque au cours de sa formation préparatoire. A l’Ecole de Cirque de Québec, après trois ans de formation, une opération à l’épaule et la perte de son porteur la poussent à s’envoler pour l’Amérique du Sud voltiger en cadre coréen. Au cours de son parcours, elle a eu la chance de travailler avec des personnes comme Lân Maurice Nguyen, Noémie Armbruster, Jun Kuribayashi ou encore Alain Reynaud qui ont été pour elle des exemples et des mentors sans pareil. Membre fondatrice de la Compagnie Zazú, elle voltige principalement avec Lilian, son partenaire de prédilection, mais elle aime multiplier les porteur.euse.s autant pour des projets de création que simplement pour le plaisir de voler.

Lilian Dufour

Formé tout d'abord à L'Ecole Nationale de Cirque de Châtellerault, puis deux années au CNAC, c'est en porteur de cadre aérien qu'il se spécialise car le travail en binôme et plus largement en collectif l'attire. Malgré une envie de travailler l'acrobatie et la danse depuis le début, ce n'est qu'à sa sortie d'école qu'il développe son mouvement au sol grâce à des stages et workshops de Gaga, floorwork ou de danse théâtre par exemple.
Pour une saison de cirque traditionnelle Lilian rencontre Marie et ne se lâchant plus ils fondent leur compagnie.
Son parcours lui permet de croiser et de travailler avec des artistes comme Nikolaus de la compagnie Pré o Coupé, Joao Dos Santos Pereira, Les Frères Ben Aïm, le Cheptel Aleïkoum ou encore la Cie Sid.
