Balance

Partners on stage and in life, acrobats Alec and Theo find each other in a perfect balance between lifting and flying, between leading and following, until this fragile balance is turned upside down by an accident. While Alec has to understand his physical situation, Theo climbs into the depths of his being, looking for the strength to deal with reality.

Director Biography - Timothée Crabbé

Timothée Crabbé was born on June 24th 1995 in Brussels, Belgium.

He graduated from the Steinerschool « De Zonnewijzer » in Leuven in June 2014 and started the Academic Bachelor animation film at LUCA School of Arts (Campus Sint-Lukas Brussel). During the second year of his Bachelor, after the making of his first animated interview ‘El Hablar con la Naturaleza’ Timothée discovered Stopmotion animation through the work of Emma De Swaef (The Magnificent Cake! dir. Emma De Swaef & and Marc James Roels (2018)).

For Timothée this was a whole new world opening its doors and so he decided to graduate in this technique with the films ‘PANTIN’ (2018) and ‘Balance’ (2019).
