Cirque Le Roux: A Deer in the Headlights

"Circus on the edge."

In 2015, Cirque Le Roux created The Elephant in the Room – an exhilarating and deliciously retro circus comedy that over the last four years has been presented more than 400 times throughout the world.

The show played to sold-out houses at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it was nominated for a Total Theatre Award. Some 50,000 spectators attended the performances at Bobino Paris, and the company received the Étoile du Parisien award in 2017.

Their latest original creation, A Deer in the Headlights, draws from the French New Wave, American grindhouse and 70s independent cinema to tell a story of a family, loss and life through an eccentric and comical intrigue.

Storyline: Miss Betty has died… Her three children gather at their rural family home in order to prepare for her funeral. However, the arrival of a mysterious stranger tips the scale and the newly reunited family is thrown into chaos. Featuring a gallery of surprising, charismatic, funny and flamboyant characters, A Deer in the Headlights highlights the singularity, fragility and tenderness of all human relations.

Six virtuosi circus artists perform handstands, hand to hand, banquine, acrobatics and tight-wire acts, blending physical risk with emotional depth and humour. A Deer in the Headlights is an homage to cinema, contemporary circus, and to the human condition, with all its comedy, awkwardness and splendour. Imbued with a cinematic, meticulously detailed aesthetic, its high-voltage performances are rich in tragicomic, dreamlike atmospheres.
