temmelepas - credit photo BluePics by LoulouIn an outdated and kitsch decor with furniture of different eras, from bourgeois grandmother to stone art, T’emmêle pas is an intimate and burlesque show; it is a circus show in which acrobatic and juggling prowess mix with dance, theatre, mime and music performed in quirky, clownish way.Are the two central characters – a man and a woman – a couple? Friends? Siblings?This relation will evolve during the show to make way for some bizarre situations between the petite blond, as maniacal as she is a pest, who, when not carried away by her foolishness and fun, tries to keep the show going; and the big, passionate but clumsy bearded man whose attention span is very short. The music and the numbers will help them complete the show…

The Fil à Retordre company was started by Anouck and Hugo, who met at the Arc en Cirque, the circus training center in Chambery (France). While studying about mixing techniques, they developed made Parasite. It was an enriching experience to work on that project and it pushed them to study mixing genres. So, they decided to work an hour-long show: T’emmêle Pas ! Consequently, they developed more projects such as a wandering, a show about a strong man.The company is associated with the MJC Totem of Chambery and is supported by the Administrative Council of Savoie, France.
