Discover the show
Two clowns searching for their path meet near a dark and crumbling arch.
In search of warmth, their shared curiosity drives them to try and make this magic arch work.
In their solitude and independence, they will no longer be able to ignore each other, they will have to trust one another, learn to help each other to rebuild the arch and hopefully move on with their lives.
This new production is a turning point for The Foutoukours. It’s an opportunity to continue passing on the knowledge of the clowning art!
