Les Poules

Walking act for inhabited giant puppets





Démons et Merveilles - Spectacle Les PoulesLes Poules

The Hens have a place in our imaginary collective familiar heritage. They have a discreet place – nothing is more modest than a hen – so much unavoidable.


Present on every continents, they feed poor and rich people.
But we don’t like them only when they are roast or boiled...
Our childhood songs and tales are filled with little russet hens, with other ones which peck some tough bread, or with a cock which will never more sing, cocodi...
  

With this universality, the Hen would have became a mythical and pretentious animal. But it hasn’t. Her eye reflects the same abysmal emptiness. Her place in the hierarchy of the bestiary is always situated at the same level : the humblest. 

The Hen, her ordinary animality, her harmless stupidity, the instinctive liking she inspires is at the height of this Company’s (re-)creation.

Invented for the street and open air, Les Poules come in the form of a walking act in a chorus of three giant puppets which can rich 2,5 to 3m high. 

Les Poules has already been performed more than 340 times in numerous Festivals, and international Events in Belgium, France, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Morocco, Netherlands, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Wales...

LES DATES A VENIRReviews

The appearance of these absurd creatures without equal has overwhelmed the audience, laughing and dreaming...
A shrewd move for those hens.
La Meuse

They are empty-headed, didn’t take a large head, it’s quite stupid and it’s quite great... A show which pays tribute to the unfathomable emptiness of those birds of which we barely caricature the features to already laugh. Comb in the air, empty eye, and beak pecking some images of the world when this one is put at their range, they wander, lay two or three stupid things and go away. The troup has a knack for sow discord. Not looking more, a corn of amusingly, a seed of sensibility, a fertilizer of poetry and hop, here is delicious harvest to satisfy the whetest appetites of curiosity...
