After spending the last four years using their knowledge as circus performers to create circus films/videos, Summer Hubbard and Raphael Herault from the company Double Take - Cinematic Circus, now use their knowledge as filmmakers to create the company’s first outdoor circus show called “Jump Cut.”
Inspired by movie directors like Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam, Jump Cut dives right into the lives, and living room, of Summer and Raphael providing a surrealistic perspective on how they go through, and get through, this life together.
With the use of symbolism, paradoxes, and distorted proportions combined with their unique language of acrobatics and cinematography, Summer and Raphael want to create a show that gives the sensation of dreaming while awake. A show that travels through time and space. A show where value is placed on the simplest of moments and poetry in the most tragic of ones.
In order to achieve this, Summer and Raphael have called upon experts in the fields of engineering, electronics, mechanics, welding, puppetry, and more and aim to create a sort of acrobatic “pas de deux” that moves fluidly from one technique to the other all the meanwhile serving the show’s screenplay. A harmonious blend of circus and cinema on the stage BUT without the use of lights and projections.
Just imagine that for around 45 minutes the whimsical living room of Summer and Raphael will rest in the public space providing an intimate look into what really happens behind [their] quirky closed doors. A mashup of events lived and/or dreamt that creates a world where things may not always be as they seem.
A show and experience fit for all ages and imaginations!
