Compagnie du Hanneton / James Thierrée — The Toad Knew
Step into the beautifully weird world of multi-talented performer and director James Thierrée.
Following Tabac Rouge in 2014, James Thierrée returns with his latest critically acclaimed creation, featuring a seamless mix of mechanical marvels, music, surreal humour and acrobatic finesse.
Six characters emerge in a strange fairy-tale lair. A woman transforms into a lizard, a piano plays itself, and plates magically appear and disappear. In the middle of it all James Thierrée works his magic with the aid of a squat servant, only to have it undone by a man beast, and aerialist Thi Mai Nguyen and contortionist Valérie Doucet spin their tricks.
- ★★★★ "A spellbinding mix of ravishing visuals, seductive music and breathtaking acrobatics"
