THE PAINTING (LE TABLEAU - 2011)
Friday 23 March 2018 | 7pm
A chateau, flowering gardens, a threatening forest, here is what, for mysterious reasons, a Painter has left incomplete. Three kinds of characters live in this painting: the Toupins, who are entirely painted, the Pafinis, who lack a few colours, and the Reufs, who are only sketches. The Toupins take over power, chase the Pafinis from the chateau, and enslave the Reufs. Convinced that only the Painter can restore harmony by finishing the painting, Ramo, Lola, and Plume decided to go looking for him.
