Les Foutoukours - Canada
8th and 9th July
Recommended minimum age :
5 years and older
Two strange characters appear on stage.
They are bushy, soft and ageless. Will they manage to find out where they are... and where they are going?
They are waiting for... who? Or what?
They are waiting for life to pass by, looking for what to do...
They take the time to look at each other, to laugh, to cry, to go up and down... but mostly they take the time to take the time.
Life's surprises may tell them what to do and where to go...
Glob is a show that explores the themes of waiting, the unknown and the encounter and stages them in a pictorial, refined and enchanting universe. A peaceful, serene, deeply human and comic work that will amaze the little ones and rest the older ones from the frantic rhythm of everyday life. A show full of surprises, sweetness, circus and magical moments!
"These two artists are adept at creating a beautiful relationship with their audience through juggling or acrobatic sequences that brilliantly showcase their technical mastery as artists."- Pascal Jacob, Artistic director, costume designer and circus historian
"The show is particularly beautiful, unique and enchanting."- Catherine Doucet, Ici Radio-Canada, Québec
About Les Foutoukours
The production company Les Foutoukours has been working on creative and original stage performances since 1997. The study of movement, states, precision of the body and rhythms have been the basis of all creations since the company's inception.
By drawing inspiration from different currents and styles in each of its productions, the Foutoukours' team is constantly working to restore the nobility of the clowning art in Quebec and around the world. Over the past 25 years, Les Foutoukours has worked on different facets of movement and the clowning universe, to the point where it has developed its own form of creek dramaturgy with the intelligent acrobatic clown.
The meeting of circus, storytelling, theater, clowning and movement allows Les Foutoukours to offer unique and diversified works that touch people in Quebec and around the world!
The temperature in the hall will be around 16 degrees, so we advise you to bring warm clothing.
