Tragedy On Wheels, a show without breaks
An ambulatory show. Twenty actors and musicians, all on wheels… bicycles, carts, tandems, skateboards, tricycles etc. Together they form a rolling retinue, in the best Tour de France style.
The entourage’s progress is the show itself. Passers-by come across the show by accident and can decide to watch it pass by, to follow or join the party, which could take them to unknown places. The retinue stops at specific points for mini one-minute shows, an improvised sequence on different subjects: being late for the wedding, official photos, mass, the dance, catching the bouquet or more unexpected scenes such as an argument, singing in chorus and even a divorce... And then they are on the move again, everyone gets back onto the vehicle they arrived on, the dynamics change and the caracters start a new journey, chases, forgetting, losing, falling, a party in motion and accidents, all of which are accentuated by the musicians who are playing as part of the entourage.
