Carole Fages

A woman takes the stage. In every area of her mundane life (at work, in private) her attempts to stick to the plan are hampered by her unavoidable clumsiness.

A secretary hurries about the stage, a seemingly model employee… Enthusiastic and exuberant, she gets stuck into her work; but, torn between her best intentions and her fanciful nature, she soon gets side-tracked. Overwhelmed by all the pressure, drowning in her own clumsiness and ever-increasing stress, before long she’s up to her neck in the most improbable topsy-turvy events... 
Actress-clown Carole Fage returns to the stage with Idiote, a sequel of sorts to À vau l’eau. 
Making innovative use of clowning techniques, she tells the story of a female character attempting to come to terms with a rigid structure demanding absolute conformity, despite the series of calamities which ensue. This absurdity brings out the darkest sides of her nature, her obsessions and innate violence, a primal reaction to this self-made prison.
