The Czech-Swiss Cie Pieds Perchés company consists of performers Morgane Widmer, Stéphanie N’Duhirahe and musician Roman Džačár.
In their performances, they focus on current social issues which they approach from the perspective of humor, dance and aerial acrobatics.
The company was founded in 2009 by the two Swiss artists, Morgane Widmer and Stéphanie N’Duhirahe, who have known each other forever. In their youth, they discovered circus arts together in Switzerland, notably the aerial rope, which became their favorite means of expression.
Their performances Foutaise, 2010; The Weight of Emptiness;2013/2016 and Peas in a Pod, 2015; Mute, 2016; Mezi Řeči, 2018 and OK(N)o, 2020; have been performed internationally (e.g. Italy, Switzerland, Canada, France, and Czech Republic.)
For the past few years, the company focuses its work on transforming and using the aerial rope technic in an innovative way and on developing site specific projects mixing Circus, Physical Theater and Visual Art.
“We express our ideas through movement, props and various artistic disciplines, while focusing on pressing contemporary issues. We do not intend to moralize, rather, we approach our subjects with humor and irony”
