Les Sorciers Hopis – Indian Hopi Kachina Dolls (The Hopi Wizards)
19th, 20th – October – 6pm
These seasoned stilt dancers offer their own interpretation of the Hopi Indian Kachina dolls, which the American Indians consider to be “spiritual beings”.
This spectacular, almost aerial, performance is dazzlingly colourful and recreates the atmosphere of a lively tribal celebration.
Les Salsitrouilles (Pumpkins) – 25th, 26th, 31st – October – 6:30pm
The Roguish Pumpkins have escaped from the vegetable patch to celebrate Halloween and they’re hell-bent on wreaking havoc! Their aim? Dish out endless chills and thrills with their non-stop comical antics. This trio uses a combination of participatory theatre and pranks, with a repertoire that includes interactive sketches, numerous walkabouts and songs.
Striking walkabout performances and larger-than-life masks… this ballet on stilts offers an eclectic mix of weird and wonderful visual poetics and strangely surreal scenes.
Les Salsorcières – The Witches – 19th, 20th, 27th, 31st – October – 6:30pm
Wearing pointy hats and clutching broomsticks, the Gossip Witches brew up potions in their cauldron whilst furiously casting spells, cackling at guests and embroiling them in their Sabbath dance before bewitching them with their secret formulae…
Unfortunately, they haven’t inherited Carabosse’s powers, and their attempts to startle and scare generally end in song and laughter.
Lucky and the Halloween Dancers – October – 19th, 25th, 26th, 27th (7pm), 31st (7:30pm + 9pm)
Lucky and his two dancers have one simple goal: teach the young and not-so-young some easy routines so they can dance to their favourite hits – all in less than 5 minutes.
