Clowns Not Dead 2019

The most famous clown figures, artists with humor and quirky play are gathered in this new edition of CLOWNS NOT DEAD. This highlight, which has become a real winter event, is aimed at the youngest, families and especially adults. It seems to us today essential to highlight these clowns, as if the attack on freedom of expression, satire and trublions experienced in January 2015 had only regenerated the verve, only to increase the desire to come with all its clumsiness, on front of the stage. This highlight also resonates with an observation about this major character. Indeed, the image of the clown is still very dusty and loaded with clichés.

With CLOWNS NOT DEAD this is what we want to shake, shake, revive. No, the clown isn't just cream pies and rude jokes. Modern clown with Tati, more traditional clown, through unusual and unclassifiable characters, this is also the identity of CLOWNS NOT DEAD!
