Experience a dream that passes by in FierS à Cheval; an ambulation of images that begin with strange characters and bizarrely-dressed science-fiction Venetians who are proud of themselves.
In this symphonic universe of legends accompanied by an original musical creation, step into a world with an atmosphere of dreamlike images, and characters transforming into bright horses.
No words but sounds, no partitions but musical atmospheres. This is a dream that passes by; a fantasy-filled ride.
Established in 1994 by its artistic director, Jean-Baptiste Duperray, the Compagnie des Quidams has created more than ten shows, performed in over than forty countries, from Europe to Australia, as well as Asia and South America.
It gathers together more than thirty artists and technicians coming from a variety of backgrounds (theatre, dance, music, circus, …).
The Compagnie des Quidams is based in Etrez, a village north of Lyon. In addition to promoting its own shows, the Compagnie develops projects to raise awareness of Street Art (public rehearsals, internship, artistical practice workshop …).
