Camille Paycha graduated from the Academy for Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg in 2015. After her graduation Camille created with Ruben Mardulier “I ate the entire fruitsalad”, in coproduction with Festival Circolo, BKKC and Bosch 500. “I ate the entire fruitsalad” performed 45 times mainly in Belgian- and Dutch festivals such as Oerol, festival Cement, festival Circolo, Cirque Plus, Cirk!, etc. She then chose to explore different artmedia in search of a co-relation with circus. Therefor she met Noortje Sanders and Thijs Veerman with the urge of treating the performing arts in a broader sense. Beginning 2017, the trio founded the project “The Hangman Radioshow”, an outside site specific performance on the scope of radio. During that same period, Camille creates the solo performance “10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1” where electronic music, circus and photography share the stage. Camille’s work is supported by Makershuis, a platform in Tilburg for new makers in crossovers of dance, circus and theatre.

Electronic Music, Photography and Circus in conversation.

10 Hi,
9 I am here to have a conversation
8 I refuse gravity
7 in every sense of the word
6 Navigating through sound
5 expanding space
4 but reducing distance between me and you
3 Let me show you the twinkling light
2 far away
1 from a boat passing by.

No need to go on an other planet. It is right here. On the beach of Oostende where Camille just moved a few months ago.
Feet on the floor, an astronaut has landed an ordinary planes.
An ordinary poetry coming from an extraordinary reality (or vice versa).
Can the ordinary and the extraordinary meet ? Which medium brings the ordinary and which one brings the extraordinary ? On which point are they converging ? Which role has the artist in this quest ? Through a multitude of media Camille questions her role as a (circus) artist.
