MTL Clown Festival: Soizick Hébert ​& ​Frédérick Desroches + La Porte Française

Montreal Clown Festival

Soizick Hébert ​& ​ Frédérick Desroches: The concert of that madcap eccentric Jackie changes direction when the crazy Diva and ukulele player, realised she gets Edgar, as the insipid back up pianist. Edgar is discouraged the way music goes. Jackie uses her mimics, juggling or magic skills to bring the various repertoire, which travel from crooner songs to hip hop dance as well as original pieces, to a parade of brief, funny and punched sketches to perturb him. The hectic and tense ambiance between Jackie & Edgar brings hilarity all the way through the show. Avec/with: Soizick Hébert, Frédérick Desroches.
