La bulle takes place outdoors in and around a one-of-a-kind bubble tent inside which the audience observes the wordless show ‘in the round’ as the sun slowly sets. Inside the bubble, the audience meets Pierrot, the iconic loner and dreamer of French pantomime and Commedia dell'arte.
In this magical setting in Memorial Peace Park at sundown, Pierrot tries to connect with the audience through the bubble, using mime, dance, text, and even drawing, with poetry, humour and magic by his side, always.
Conceived long before the pandemic, La bulle was already exploring the theme of social distancing, exploring an equally contemporary paradox: private space in full transparency.
Created in 1997 by co-founders Sylvie Bouchard and Artistic Director David Danzon, CORPUS’ whimsical performances are presented in both traditional and unusual locations for large and diverse audiences. CORPUS has presented over 2,400 performances at venues and events across Canada and around the world in 35 countries on six continents.
Be enchanted on a summer’s evening with La bulle.
