This is the most beautiful place on earth. There are many such places.
Branché started in 2020 as a collaboration between Cirque Barcode and Acting for Climate. It is a show to address the climate crisis, created in a way as to have minimal impact during creation and while touring.
Designed to be played in parks or forests and centered on group acrobatics, Branché is a celebration of the strength of community and our relationships to each other and to nature. It is a show to get people outside and inspire them as to what is possible if we work together.
