L'Effet de Serge

Philippe Quesne/Vivarium Studio (France)
‘L'Effet de Serge...demonstrates how the simplest object, the merest gesture, can produce wonder.' The Village Voice
Meet Serge. Every Sunday he entertains his friends with a parade of homespun spectacles, animating everything around his basement and putting some magic back into their lives.
With a nod to Jacques Tati, Samuel Beckett and Mr Bean, L'Effet de Serge is a haunting and humorous tribute to the pleasures and necessity of making art.
From the experimental Vivarium Studio in Paris, Serge has been embraced by audiences across 20 countries.
His universe may be small, his rituals seem ordinary, but L'Effet de Serge will make you love the world a little more.
Performed in English. Latecomers will not be admitted.
Conceived, directed and designed by: Philippe Quesne
With: Gaëtan Vourc'h, Isabelle Angotti, Rodolphe Auté, Cléo Quesne Esturgie and local guests
