Atelier Lefeuvre & André (France)
Some misunderstandings and rivalries are planted and take root but here is a place of calm in which to contemplate the human condition without stress or pressure.
Relax and refresh yourself in this garden for all seasons, with ninety minutes of great comic invention that takes inspiration from Keaton, Beckett and Jacques Tati.
Industrial draftsman Didier André and livestock farmer Jean-Paul Lefeuvre first teamed up at the French National Circus School in Chalon, from where they were invited to join Pierre Bidon’s now legendary Archaos circus troupe. Individually they have appeared with leading circus groups Que-Cir-Que and Cirque O, and with the choreographer Philippe Decoufflé. They have worked as a duo since 2001, with La Serre, Le Jardin and Bricolage Erotique.
‘There is constant delight and amazement in this show and a rarely seen mastery of tempo, so delicate, so perilous, like taming a volcano’.
La Jardin has also been adapted into an outdoor show for performance called La Serre
