Trampoline Staircase Performance Is Both Dizzying And Mesmerizing

The Mechanics of History, or La Mecanique de l’Histoire, sees dancers jumping from the steps and onto the trampoline as they rotate together in Le Pantheon – an 18th Century building in Paris’ Latin Quarter.

The performance artwork was devised by French dancer Yoann Bourgeois, and is on show under the Pantheon’s central, and highest dome.

In 1851, the same dome was home to physicist Leon Foucault’s famous, 67-metre pendulum – which demonstrated the rotation of the Earth.
