Homo Ludens

A comedy where the comic processes of circus deliver up a message of hope.

A poetic and dark comedy inspired by Samuel Beckett's Endgame. Blending everyday life and clowning, 4-59 reminds us of the essential things in life.

The Homo Ludens company presents a subtle and delicate performance that makes us laugh as it exploits the very fine line between comedy and tragedy. The originality of this show lies in its cathartic effect: the comic power of clowning and traditional circus applied to some powerful and very moving subjects.
