Who are Les DéDé’s, with their sleepy faces, their arms far too long ?
They are the Standing Sleepers. (In French, Dormeurs Debout = DéDé’s)
Their comfortable slippers, their cozy night dresses make you think in the night, the soft, the intimate, the sweet.
So, Standing Sleepers or Awakened Dreamers ?
Awakened Dreamers for sure, who once thrown into the street, rediscover the world. As if the night had gaven them back their innocence and appetite for discovery.
New, lively, curious, playful, joyful, they recreate through their candid look the urban landscape, and especially those who live in it.
This duo, which falls back sometimes in the sleeping softness... wakes up quicly ...
This show plays, like all the moving shows of the company, the confrontation of imaginary characters, very graphic, with reality. Confrontation that causes a breakdown conducive to poetry, laught and sharing.
Les DéDé’s are comfortable anywhere : in the city, in the countryside, at the sea or in the mountains. Played according to the events, places, and meetings with the public, designed for the street, in the form of a moving show, Les DéDé’s are two funny puppets, of about 2,30 meter.
For Les DéDé’s, the Démons et Merveilles Group is co-produced by the Cultural Center Georges Brassens of Avrillé, and supported by the City of Angers, Anjou Théâtre/Department of Maine et Loire and Region Pays de la Loire.
Created in 2013, Les DéDé’s have already been performed more than 175 times in Belgium, France, Germany, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Romania and Switzerland.
Les DéDé’s are two creatures as we enjoy passing through the streets of Châlon. These characters with their funny face make you smile.
Itinerant dream, they embrace each scene of daily life, coating them with sweetness, leaving the passers-by astounded.
Les DéDé’s delighted the streets of the city during their stroll...
