"Les Sept Planches de la Ruse meaning The Seven Boards of Skill is the spectacular new work conceived and directed by Aurélien Bory. Based on an ancient Chinese game, the tangram, in which seven different shapes are manipulated in almost infinite combinations, the show demonstrates how geometry is capable of producing exquisite visual poetry.

On stage, seven giant, interlocking forms are assembled and manoeuvred with incredible agility, strength and cunning by fourteen performers from Dalian, China. As the performers climb, balance and vanish into voids, new images are created evoking abstract landscapes, terrifying ravines and skyhigh city towers, they are vivid metaphors for human experience."
