Discover the show
Two strange characters appear on stage.They are fluffy, soft and ageless.Will they find out where they are…and where they are going?
They’re waiting…who? What?They wait that life to goes by, looking for something to do…
They take time to look at each other, to laugh, to cry, to go up and down…Most of all they take the time to take time.The surprises of life might indicate them what to do and where to go…
A show full of surprises, softness, circus and magical moments!
In 3 years of research and work, the show has explored the themes of the unknown, the wait and the meeting to put them in an scenic world full of imagery, magic and enchantment.
To guide its creation in clown acting, the company has been interested in the challenge of silent movies that force to have a perfect physical acting and movement clarity to transpose a scenario without words.
Physical work has always been the work focus of Les Foutoukours and in Glob the approach it as a eulogy to slowness and simplicity. A peaceful, serene, profoundly human and comic work that amazes the little ones and rests the adults of the wild daily rhythm.
