Jamii and Théâtre Français de Toronto co-presented
"La Bulle" by CORPUS
Aug 31 to Sept 5, 2021
Berkeley Castle Courtyard
A visually stunning and poetic solo performance from the minds of David Danzon and Carolin Lindner.
La Bulle featured a one-of-a-kind bubble tent and its sole inhabitant: Pierrot, the iconic dreamer. Confined together, they live in transparent symbiosis. In this theatrical setting, there is nowhere to hide - an absurd situation, fully exploited with humour by a lucid and lunar Pierrot.
La Bulle is nominated for the 2022 Dora Awards by Toronto Alliance of Performing Arts in the categories of "Outstanding Achievement in Design" (Scenic Design: David Danzon and Carolin Lindner) and "Outstanding Production" (CORPUS presented by Théâtre Français de Toronto and Jamii).
