Public's Award Winner MIMOS OFF 2016
AUDIENCE : All Ages
DURATION : 45 MIN
PUBLIC : about 500 people
"There is the town, the street, the bench and two old ladies killing time.
Never where we expect them to be, sometimes mischievous, often irreverent, always playful, these two grannies who are both a little sadistic and full of humour give us their vision, sometimes gentle, sometimes cruel and caustic, of the world surrounding them. Impish and slightly crazy, those two take us to their burlesque and absurd world where old age gets played and unplayed.
Germaine and Germaine make fun of us, but it is in order to laugh even better at everything! With hardly any words, they nurture their eccentricity like a treasure and lead an invisible war against boredom and time that flies by, and against death getting closer.
Germaine and Germaine act like a remedy against solitude and general indifference. A spicy and refreshing spoonful of medicine, swallowed in no time, which eventually reminds us that from the bottom of our loneliness, it is good to meet others, to laugh and to share."
