Picture this: a crowded bullfight ring in downtown Bogota, under the moonlight of the brightest full moon of the year, surrounded by gigantic, colorful buildings. Suddenly, the lights turn off. From the top of Colombia’s tallest building — the Torre Colpatria (almost 200 metres high) — a white angel descends, dropping feathers on his way down to the arena. Sounds like fun? This scene is the introduction to Tombés du Ciel, or Fallen from the Sky, directed by Pierrot Bidon from Les Studios de Cirque de Marseille. They were the main attraction of the XI Iberoamerican Theatre Festival, which was held in Bogota in March.
