At first glance, Paul-Émile Dumoulin seems like just a regular librarian. He is serious, proud and very orderly. Every book is in its place on his impeccable shelves. The only problem? As soon as Paul-Émile gets his nose in a book, reality disappears, giving way to the slightly crazy worlds he discovers between the pages. On his adventures, the very sensible librarian metamorphoses. He suddenly turns into strange and silly characters who perform acrobatics, balancing, juggling, break dancing and beatboxing. Just how far will reading take him?

About Le Gros Orteil

The company Le Gros Orteil, founded in 2013, has as its primary mission the creation of shows, animations and professional workshops for young audiences, mixing the disciplines of circus arts, physical theater and clowning. The company aims to encourage improvisation as the starting point for the creation of a show, to translate the authenticity of emotions, and to promote friendly interaction with its audience. Because children are nuggets of spontaneity and boundless imagination, our shows leave plenty of room for imagination, travel and dreams. Without a fourth wall, our artists draw children into their stories.
