On the ring, a man gave himself a challenge: to accomplish a string of feats in quick succession. The lion’s leap, the flaming otter number, the cowboy spaghetti, the corde lisse fall, the crazy cook’s prowess, the death-defying stunts: nothing can stop him, and nothing is enough. Obsessed with an aim he will never reach, he wants to go faster, climb higher, try riskier. He humorously finds ways to mark his superiority on natural forces and to forever push his limits. Through his stubbornness, the artist he was transforms bit by bit into a tragic hero, prisoner of a never-ending quest. But with the help of his faithful ring worker, the public’s connivance, and the whispers of a voice that sounds very much like a little inside voice, he may understand he is better off listening to his desires rather than indefinitely braving the universe.
