Two clowns struggle to change their day-to-day life. Exasperated with waiting for the biggest international theaters’ call, they decide to accept the unthinkable contract... a children's birthday party. Their life is then revealed to you. An exuberant facade often hides a disturbing sensitivity. While the laughter bursts, their distress swells slowly. In their quest for fame, will they manage to be loved? "Kombini" is inspired by the Russian clown style and integrates circus techniques including juggling, hand to hand and handstands. It has been created for Les Foutoukours’ 20th anniversary. Based on a series of acts extracted from the daily life of two exuberant clowns, the show gets the adult crowd thinking about their own daily routines while laughing at the duo’s immoderation. Dear adult, this show is dedicated to you.
