Hors Surface – Damien Droin


Hors Surface is a Toulon company (83) which has been defending for 10 years a new, multiple circus with high acrobatic requirements. Poetic and visual, this company directed by Damien DROIN develops extraordinary scenographies and claims a unique language between original musical composition and high-level choreography. Damien creates imaginary universes, mental spaces and parallel worlds which draw their strength from reality.

Our artistic line: questioning changing space, our relationship to reality. A multiple circus, which draws its originality from the creation of imaginary worlds

The HORS SURFACE Company continues its search for an original artistic language where the question of movement questions that of space. Damien is passionate about scenography and that’s how he invented during his studies at the CNAC, the Acronet: a stretched canvas of 60 m2 designed with a fishing net, as a trampoline.

This new piece of equipment was then requested and evolves in each new show of the company.

The creative circus is an art of movement, of going beyond. A trigger for experiences and meetings. Today, I continue my journey through forms and trays, and continue to hybridize gestures.
