Nice Work is a three hour burlesque, sound and visual performance which takes the form of a path in a public place:

During 3 hours the Nice work operating team will experiment possible and improbable uses of a public space. They test the terrain for intangible yet essential elements, and then invent a path that will provoke suspense, hilarity and unforeseeable consequences.


They will attach, lift, balance, and propel themselves and their surroundings, gently, intensely, contemplatively… You can use the path or be a spectator, depending on your point of view.

The Nice Work professionals use specific tools developed by the enterprise: protean survey instruments, signposting, unexpected sounds, gas and smoke, mobile view points, planks of wood with special dimensions…

Nice Work operators :

- Pierre Pilatte, clown, burlesque street performer,

- Sophie Borthwick, artistic direction and on site referee,
