About the Event
Four artists arrive in the night at the place where their show is to be presented. They fall asleep only
to discover upon waking that their audience is already there. The show begins, but things get all
mixed up: day-to-day life interferes with the performance, forcing it down a new, unpredictable path.
In these artists’ hands, everyday objects become tools to create a quirky universe, sometimes
bordering on the absurd. The characters let their imaginations run wild to the point where they even
lose sight of reality for a while. They dive head first into the unpredictable, with virtuosity guiding
And that’s where the real journey begins: for these four pals, time is a great travel companion that
sparks their curiosity, stimulates their sense of awe, and enhances their tremendous joy in being
together. One thread leads to another as they weave the present moment, driven by their
uncontrollable whimsicalness and overwhelming desire to share their adventure with the audience.
Since its founding in 1974, our Aubergine has moved from one garden to another to the delight of both
the young and the young heart.
L'Aubergine has carved out its own unique niche by cultivating a specific artistic vision combining the
arts of clowning, the circus, music, and theatrical and movement techniques.
