LA BULLE IS THE NEW SHOW FROM CORPUS, DESIGNED FOR ANY PUBLIC SPACE AND FOR ALL AGES.
It features a one-of-a-kind bubble tent (a character in its own right) and its confined inhabitant: Pierrot, the iconic loner and dreamer. Together, they live in transparent symbiosis.
In this theatrical setting, there is nowhere to hide: an absurd situation, fully exploited by a lucid and lunar Pierrot. Through mime, dance, text, even drawing, he tries to connect with his audience. Dressed in the archetypal black and white costume and make-up, he manages to create bonds, alas all ephemeral, with those who are willing to give him a little time. He embraces solitude whole-heartedly, and swims freely like a fish in water in the realm of dreams. Poetry and humor are always at his side, true to CORPUS’ vocation.
La bulle was conceived long before COVID. The show was already exploring the theme of social distancing before it became a concern for all. This new work also speaks of an equally contemporary paradox: private space in full transparency. La bulle places the audience in the round. Audience members are free to circulate around the set, without constraint or restriction of movement. It is ideally programmed at sunset, allowing the 2nd half of the show to unfold in the darkness of the night and – with a little luck – in the moonlight, under the stars.
