“Carried away by the magic of laughter, the audience instantly rediscovers their inner child.”

- Le Devoir

“Moments of pure happiness”


"Antoine Terrieux and Julien Mandier have dishevelled imaginations and an abundance of humour."

- Télérama

"A crazy, madcap and hilarious show!"

- Que faire à Paris

It’s the nature of genius: making something new out of the ordinary. When the two jugglers of Blizzard Concept get together, the results will leave you dishevelled. Juggling with balls and hairdryers? Why not! Insanely ingenious, incredibly unbelievable and so funny it will leave you in stitches, Hair dryer’s opera is one of those shows that will make you feel like you’ve witnessed something truly special.

Devoid of reason and brilliantly performed, this show will make you take a stand, hold somebody’s hand, join a rock band, play in the sand, break the chain of command, head to Finland, and venture inland.

Please be aware that there will be gunshots for a moment during the show.

Circus disciplines:
Clown arts, object manipulation and new magic

About Blizzard concept

Julien Mandier fell into circus life at age 10, when he travelled with his artist mother. After trying his hand at music, clown arts, theatre, and more, Julien finally takes up circus training. His partner Antoine Terrieux discovered juggling while studying geography, and creates a diabolo duo before turning his attention to magic and studying new magic at the CNAC de Châlons-en-Champagne. The two French funny guys meet at the circus school in Toulouse and then help create a group and a show that tours many countries. Blizzard Concept company and Hair dryer’s opera are born when the two return from their tour. In 2014, an extract from the show is presented at the Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde to great applause.
