La Nouba

A door opens and two worlds collide. Enter the attic of make-believe, where the mundane meets the marvellous. Dreams and nightmares intertwine. La Nouba which calls on both individual and collective memory, is an unforgettable journey into a world at once threatening and exhilarating, frightening and familiar. La Nouba beckons to us, challenges us to uncover passions we thought we had lost long ago; to frolic in our childhood dreams and enter a place where the extraordinary transforms and overcomes the ordinary.

La Nouba is the meeting of two worlds poles apart: the fantastic world of the circus artists - the Cirques (circus people), sporting bright, fluorescent colours–and that of the Urbains (urbanites), who wear dark, monochromatic outfits. When these two worlds first make contact, the magic and amazing feats of the one set fire to the pale mundanity of the other.

La Nouba - Characters

  • Clowns

    The clowns Balthazar & Sergei.

  • Les Cons (The Nuts)

    Once upon a time there were four Nuts. Four Nuts that no one could see, but they themselves saw everything. Nuts they might be, but mad they were not. And these Nuts had but one idea in their heads: to mind everyone’s business but their own, to disobey, to muddle lines, stories, destinies . . . and to have fun!

  • The Dancers

    Imagine a classic love story with the passion and intensity of Romeo and Juliet. Only now, the relationship is between a Pierrot clown and a lost ballerina. Their love, like their dance, is a never-ending story filled with desire, fear and a longing for more.

  • The Titan

    He is a solitary figure, unfriendly and potentially threatening. He marches assertively through the world of La Nouba, like a nightmare waiting to take over a sweet dream. Beware the giant.

  • The Cleaning Lady

    Once upon a time, there was an Attic that had been abandoned for many years. Among the cobwebs, the forgotten toys, the trunks bursting with memories, strange and fabulous characters lay dormant, just waiting to take up their tale. All she had to do was open the door. As the door swung shut behind her, Petite Madame (who had merely come to do a little cleaning), found herself beset on all sides by a mad reel of the possible and the impossible, dream and reality, the wonderful and the everyday.

  • The Acrobatic Pierrot

    A member of the Red Pierrot family, the Acrobatic Pierrot appears up on the mountain, on the wall at the End of the World, on the Rocks, at the heart of the action.

  • The Green Bird

    She has escaped her cage, and desperately wants to fly. But she can't fly away and join the circus, because she is too awkward. She remains trapped in the urban world like a marionette with tangled strings.

  • The Walker

    What’s going on in the head (under the hat) of the lonely little Walker? Back and forth he goes, never stopping... except at very specific moments, for reasons known to him alone.
