Spiderman is back in town

Category: Show Related artist: Tony Clifton Circus

What is a Superhero ? What is the collective imagination ?

An unlikely Spiderman,pathetic and defeated, is suspended at tens of centimeters above the ground,wrapped tight, with a roll of cellophane, to a column in the middle of an urban crossroads.

The image has a force at once sublime and terrible,but the real show is in the reaction of the passers-by,encouraged (by a carer who accompanies the Superhero) to take advantage of this incredible oppurtunity to be confronted with the normality of the defeat of the invincible.

The performance unfolds in two parts : a walkabout during which Spiderman promenades in a wheelchair,then a second part during which he is suspended and offered to the stares of the passers-by and their cameras…

Length of show : 90min. approx. 2 performers

Technical requirements : one wheelchair and one place to hang Spiderman
