Compagnie du Hanneton
Conceived and created by James Thiérrée
A man's home is his castle-unless you're the hapless occupant of
a structure that continuously, and spectacularly, shape-shifts. In
this handmade landscape, trapeze artist, clown, magician, and
violinist James Thiérrée (Au Revoir Parapluie, 2007 Next
Wave; Bright Abyss, 2005 Next Wave) performs his new
fantastical solo work Raoul.
Within a magical world rife with surreal creatures and billowing sails, our hero climbs and tumbles with astonishing athleticism. A maestro of physical theater, Thiérrée creates an affecting portrait of a man jostled by forces both benign and ominous, dreamy and unpredictable, whose movements speak louder than words.
