2-Cyrano 6.jpg


Here’s a quartet of gypsies who take the stage with their caravan full of miscellaneous objects. What play should they perform today? They ask the public: it shall be Cyrano de Bergerac! One of the gypsies identifies completely with their character, juggles with the scenes, deconstructs the acts, selects the best moments and interprets them in his own way. The gypsy is supported by three acolytes who do the best they can in interpreting the various characters with the help of objects, by playing music and by singing! Will they make it to the end of the play…?

Welcome to the Roma theater!

To put an end to… Cyrano, stages a quartet of gypsies passionate about theater and music who offer great classics of theater to the different audiences they meet during their travels. The meeting of the characters of gypsies with those of the play of Cyrano allows a crossover between two stories which will captivate the spectator. Also, the spectator will be immersed in the universe of these gypsies while all the madness of the game, made possible by the panoply of heterogeneous objects accumulated in their trailer, will be put at the service of the characters of the play by Edmond Rostand. The theater of objects is really in the spotlight in this creation of Motus! Approaching the character of Cyrano, too big, too strong, too in love… it is an open door on the excessiveness and the intimacy at the heart of this excessiveness.
