Avant de fermer le couvert

A clownish tragi-comedyCouvert-tn

With this solo show, Rodrigue “Chocolat” Tremblay delivers a performance to an adult audience, set behind closed doors, where a colorful canvas is painted with laughter and drama.
We find ourselves in the waiting room of a medical clinic filled with patients, represented by the spectators, where the character must deal with the burden of bureaucracy: clashing of the minds, clashing of the titans and clashing of test tubes.
Convinced that he is going down the road of no return and straight to certain death, the clown’s steady mindset becomes a canvas for dramatic and comical situations, laughter, tears and parody. He tries to find some sort of peace of mind by trying to take lightly all the situations with which he is confronted. He tries to laugh at everything – even himself – but the spectator soon understands that the clown’s comedic behavior is nothing but a façade for his anguish and the fear that the illness is gaining on the illness itself.
