GESTUAL HUMOR SHOW FOR ALL PUBLICS
A daily clown’s life: work, family, leisure… A basic life that anyone can live everywhere… But, suddenly, without even anticipating it, the conflict erupts. Without knowing why, there are those who fight, there are those who die, there are those who have to flee.
Fleeing from normalcy, from a broken normalcy, and embarking on a great journey towards stability. Or, at least, where it is thought to be lying. Where it is hoped dreams come true: a stable family, work, daily food, a house, a car, a computer, to fly a plane…
With «Le Voyage», JAM focuses on refugees and migrants, and the journey they must embark on towards a new life. A deep reflection on an invisible and dehumanized collective.
JAM puts all his comic experience as a clown on stage to shake up the audience. Because clown is not just a fun technique. In essence, it is the art of awakening hidden feelings. Hence, such feelings can be laughter, of course! But also crying, pain & solidarity.
The stage design is minimalist. In “Le Voyage”, surplus is not an option. Migrants very few leftover utensils can carry on. And, in this context, it is the suitcase that stands as the major symbol of the migrant. A suitcase full of dreams and hopes, a suitcase that is everything.
And JAM gets the 50 minute show to revolve around a simple suitcase.
