LE GROUPE DEMONS & MERVEILLES PRESENTS :

Les Poules

Walking act
for inhabited giant puppets

“ The appearance of these absurd creatures without equal has overwhelmed the audience, laughing and dreaming... A shrewd move for those hens. ”.

LA MEUSE

THEY GO, BEAK IN THE WIND, INORDINATELY CURIOUS

The Hens have a place in our imaginary collective familiar heritage. They have a discreet place – nothing is more modest than a hen – so much unavoidable. Present on every continents, they feed poor and rich people.

But we don’t like them only when they are roast or boiled... Our childhood songs and tales are filled with little russet hens, with other ones which peck some tough bread, or with a cock which will never more sing, cocodi... With this universality, the Hen would have became a mythical and pretentious animal. But it hasn’t. Her eye reflects the same abysmal emptiness. Her place in the hierarchy of the bestiary is always situated at the same level : the humblest.

The Hen, her ordinary animality, her harmless stupidity, the instinctive liking she inspires is at the center of this Company’s new (re-)creation.

Invented for the street and outdoors, LES POULES is a playful walkact for three characters 2,5 m to 3,5m high. They go, beak in the wind, round eye totally opened, inordinately curious.
