The Grand Banquet of the Giants: carte blanche for grown

Because make no mistake about it, it is not a question of satiating you but of stirring up your hunger and whetting your appetite…

🥂 Five days of celebration and shows where we will raise our glasses to friendship, the strength of the collective and the power of the imagination. 🍾

🌱 Five days of celebration and shows, to pay tribute to Christophe Evette, our artistic director who passed away in June 2021. 🍀

🐸 Five days of celebration and shows to celebrate his talent, his appetite for life and taste without moderation the fruits of creativity, audacity,

freedom and tenderness! 🐠

🎺 The event will end on Sunday October 16 with a huge digestive parade: inspired by the historical figure of Olympe de Gouges and the history of the district, around twenty giants will invade the streets with their banners for a giant and festive demonstration, with music and slogans. ✊🏽

▬▬▬▬ ON THE MENU ▬▬▬▬

🍗 WE ARE HUNGRY 🍗:

This entre-sort revisits fairy tales and childhood fears. The public, chosen with small onions, arrives like a hair in the soup at a banquet of giants of gargantuan dimensions.

🎭 THE “IN-GAME” CYCLE 🎭

- IF YOU FALL:

Cardboard puppets and four actors tell the little-known story of the National Council of Resistance and its program. It debates, it dances, it laughs, it scores.

- THE ROCKER:

How and why the death penalty was abolished in France, by rag dolls with strikingly realistic faces and two actors.

- THE YELLOW LINE :

On a round table, an actress and terracotta figurines remind us that social advances did not arrive in Santa’s hood, but were conquered with a hard fight.

🐪 🐫 HORIZONTALS 🐪 🐫:

Fifty sculptures to manipulate, to move, to tell the story of nomadic happiness and freedom, an invitation to a unique journey.

🎯 BONA KELE 🎯:

The peoples of Burkina Faso are revolting against colonization and the war of the peoples of Burkina Faso. Narrative with table carvings.

🐝 In the Square de la Roquette and its surroundings…

🍖 GIANT PUPPET APPETIZERS 🍖:

Giant puppets and other oversized ingredients are making their way to the square and the neighbourhood.

🐝 In the Olympe-de-Gouges room and on its square…
