Sens Dessus Dessous

Category: Show Related artist: Collectif Malunes

The show is a game cadenced by entrances and exits, falls and stunts, appearances and disappearances, as in a classical Farce.

Then, enhanced by the professional prowess of the circus discipline, it is allowed to go further, deeper and transcend to something far more poignant than the common farce.

The tone of the show is made up of a fraternal relationship between the characters of the group, a young girl with a southern temperament and three energetic boys

Throughout the show we are confronted by ‘Mademoiselle Française’, who is hesitant about what to wear. She presents her version of Eve and the forbidden fruit. Her irritated monologue leaves traces across the show where the apples resonate as a punishment, but also as a game.

A touch of absurdity strengthens the content: apples in the

mouth become pigs being put in an oven, Mademoiselle

Française launches into the air to find her trapeze, a

duo dances in a circle and a giant hammer crashes to

the ground.

An end as energetic as aesthetic, they regain the

pleasure of being on stage, with no pretense. They

appear before us, honest, simple and almost naked.
