The clown seeks for, and almost always finds, the flaws within reason and the like. The wise man trembles as he laughs, because often the core of a laughter, the life of men, is primarily made of sadness, said Baudelaire.
When clowns are able to make numbers out of letters and dress up facts with nudity, freedom is their prison. In this performance you will be invited to observe and reflect on the figure of the clown by means of a musical collage formed by shows of their own creation and some classics, all seasoned with a bit of sweet and sour humour to uncover the muscles of laughter. Maybe your shoes will turn bigger; or maybe you will see yourself reflected in the characters crowded around the circus ring as if the clowns had somehow kidnapped your heart. And you may realize that "laughing" is not just a word, but something deeper. As you will notice, these clowns do not like to laugh at anyone but rather with everyone ... because laughter heals almost everything!
