It is truly a magical world into which Compagnie Barks takes spectators young and old with daring acrobatics, impressive scenography and wondrous cinematic tricks. “Let us accept absurdity, forget reason and laugh at logic!” is the appeal voiced by artists François Lemoine and Bastien Dausse. ›Les Idées Grises‹ opens the door to a universe in which the space-time continuum is suspended, the real merges with the surreal and liberty and joy take precedence over everything else. An ode to incongruity!
