The story:

Mr. And Mrs. Poiseau are the old couple we all dream of becoming. They know each other by heart and like to turn their habits upside down as often as possible.

For Mrs. Poiseau’s 75th birthday, Mr. Poiseau went out of his way: he threw her a surprise birthday party. He secretly dragged half of their kitchen out on the street to bake her favorite cake, and thought he had it all figured out, but then…

Mrs. Poiseau, her husband and yourselves are in for a few surprises: some laughs, a few pranks and a decadent recipe that will make for a rather extraordinary birthday party.

 

Since it creation in 2013, this show has been performed over 350 times, in Street Theater Festivals and for other occasions in France (all the way to Guiana) and abroad (Spain, Italy, Luxemburg, Belgium, England, South Korea, Japan).

This is a universal and silent Street Theater performance. The tempo is given by laughs, some sounds, silence and a soundtrack from the 60s.

The story unfolds in public space and draws its strength from it. The couple interacts with the street environment and is eager to meet you and to share this birthday party with you.

What can you do against death and old age?

We haven’t discovered any youth potion, but on stage, we perform the impossible.
