Faux Pas

Faux Pas Performers

FAUX PAS translates from French as “a false step”, a behavior that’s considered audacious in society. In other words, a FAUX PAS is a form of expression that pushes the boundaries of social norms. It’s being yourself, regardless of everything. This is how you could describe FAUX PAS, the team of Latvian artists: expressive, passionate, bold. Their art is synergy between contemporary dance and circus. Vivid yet delicate metaphors in a story about two people and the private, invisible side of their relationship known only to those who experience it. Performers use different dance styles and techniques, and they recently introduced a Cyr wheel, which helps immerse spectators and tell their story even more dramatically.
