Qu’est-ce Que C’est? - What are they doing here?
A comedy slapstick mystery from acclaimed French Director @CharlotteSaliou
DATES: 28 November - 8 December 2018
VENUE: #NICA National Circus Centre, 39-59 Green Street, Prahran, VIC
We are looking for someone… someone important maybe, or maybe not? We don’t know who it will be, we may not even know what we are searching for… Charlotte Saliou is a Paris-based circus director known for her delightful brand of contemporary clowning and physical comedy with a strong narrative storyline. She has created numerous shows including ElianeS and Jackie Star, Elegance and Beauty and has worked with international companies such as Cirque le Roux and Compagnie Numero 8.
Expect the unexpected as Saliou brings characters to life from NICA’s cohort of 3rd year performers. In their final production as students at NICA, this ensemble will serve up a spectacle of eccentricity, exultation, spontaneity and humour. Enjoy a range of elite circus skills mixed with physical theatre, falls, slapstick and poetic stage imagery.
Within the characters of Qu’est-ce Que C’est? you may find a friend, an enemy, someone loved, an icon, a star, a queen, a superman, a fool, or a Madonna - in short, the Everyman who summons our humanity.
