Calenture 227 of the Hypogeum, for one actor devoured by his clown and one juggler eaten alive by his balls
The Clown of the Boulder is the final part of a triptych called The Talker Clown. The other two parts are The Clown of the Stream and The Clown of the Swamps. These three pieces will offer different perspectives and interrogate poetically and through performance the nature of Jean Lambert-wild’s clown: where he comes from, what are his language and his emotions.
The Clown of the Rock represents Jean Lambert-wild’s white clown as Sisyphus, used as a metaphor of the artist’s condition. The Scarabeus sacer, most commonly known as dung beetle, solitarily rolling dung, an astronomer and tireless worker, is a marvellous insect and an ideal Sisyphus here. Jean Lambert-wild will perform this piece, accompanied by juggler Martin Palisse and actress Laure Wolf.
This is the first poetic collaboration between Martin Palisse, director of Sirque, Pôle National Cirque of Nexon, Région Nouvelle Aquitaine, and Jean Lambert-wild.
