COME FOR THE SHOW, STAY FOR THE WOE

A sinister ringmaster invites the inhabitants of a gloomy city to a circus tent, where they preside over catastrophic acts. The trapeze artist plummets, the animal trainer is devoured, the human cannonball is lost in space…

Paper, ink, sand and silhouettes burst to life in this riotous work for children and adults. French duo Romain Bermond and Jean-Baptiste Maillet draw and play music as they build a big-top universe live, their striking creations projected onto a large screen.

The amazing result is cinema without film, mixing DIY creativity with a poetic sensibility. Accompanied by a whimsical funk and soul soundtrack, this feel-good show literally emerges before the eyes.
