Hybridation de l'acrobatie et du texte sur les scènes circassiennes contemporaines : dramaturgie, fiction et représentations

Abstract : The circus, which combines the most disparate disciplines and aesthetics and exposes the bodies in extreme postures, is a composite and excessive art: deeply hybrid. Articulating theory and practice, this thesis devoted to acrobatic scenes intends to study process of creation: specifically the hybridization of acrobatics with the arts of text (writing and talking) based on a corpus of narrative and spoken acrobatic performances created between 2004 and 2016 by circus companies in various scenic spaces (tent, street or theater scenes) and which stages fictions. However this hybridization is quite rare in abounding French contemporary circus scenes, these scenic experiences has allowed us to deepen the study of several questions that animate nowadays acrobatic creation: poetics of acrobatics that underlies the quest for circus dramaturgies, composition of forms and consequently that of auctoriality in acrobatic forms. Indeed, this thesis aim to study the movement of transformation of an art and its representations, as well as the presuppositions that underlie the affirmation of the legitimacy of circus performances on contemporary scenes. How do the transformations, which the text imparts to the strong and fragile acrobatics arts, and vice versa, implies to rethink the composition modalities of an acrobatic show? What visions of the world do acrobats have to share? What worlds do they have to invent and represent? Text and speech impose to rethinking acrobatic corporeities along with the logic of the composition of the creations: they participate in the renewal of the circus scenes which refine and affirm their point of view on the world.
