Parks and garden version

We are in 1925. The Gulliver et Co agency proposes to the public a surrealist experience: leave on the tracks of Gulliver, to explore the parts of the country which he visited. Thanks to the objects of the everyday life which they divert, characters and public skip into these parallel worlds, where live tiny or huge beings, horses endowed with word, about which speak the legends of the whole world …

Parade version

A New Orleans trio leads the way, pulling the public in its suite, in the tempo of the notes of the saxophone, the trombone and the banjo. A big bright horse follows them, dancing in rhythm with an explosives expert who pâtine of diverse effects the atmosphere of the procession.

A giant and his daughter bring up the rear, below a sky of stars, held at arm’s length by collusive inhabitants…

UNIVERSE

To take the public in these strange journeys, we appeal to multidisciplinary artists, capable of playing the comedy, of dashing into acrobatics and of giving life to puppets. The characters were inspired the paintings of Magritte, open unsuspected doors towards others world. They make it the discovery of creatures-puppets, made by lianas, by fibers and by barks, and endowed with intelligence. Thanks to the inventiveness of the surrealists, our modern world meets Primitive arts, between humor and poetry, on the background of music afrojazz.

ISSUES

Jonathan Swift’s work keeps seducing the children as the adults, by the universal dimension of the tales and the legends on which it leans. Raised to the rank of surrealist by Breton André, Swift invents worlds mirrors, populated with surprising beings, which look like us strangely. We invite the public to share these magical meeting, so that humanity rhymes with tolerance, and difference with delight.
