Cie des Pieds Perchés is a new circus company performing in Switzerland, France and Czech Republic.
The company was founded in 2009 by two Swiss artists, Morgane Widmer and Stéphanie N’Duhirahe. They have known each other since always. In their youth, they both discovered the circus arts in Switzerland, notably the aerial rope, which later became their favorite means of expression.
Their performances (Foutaise, 2010; The Weight of Emptiness, 2013/2016; Peas in a Pod, 2015) have been played in Italy, Switzerland, Canada, France, and Czech Republic.
In 2016 Stéphanie and Morgane created their new performance MUTE/ En sourdine.
They collaborated on stage with the musician Roman Džačár.
They presented this show for the first time on October 7th, 2016 in the Alfred ve dvoře theater. For this project the company was supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, the City of Prague, Cirqueon, the Swiss Embassy, KD Mlejn, DW7, Theater Divadlo na Cucky, Theater Divadlo Yarmat, and Motus/Alfred ve dvoře.
“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” Cie des Pieds Perchés
