In a mythical 1950s America, Jimmy Jones lives in the shadow of an oversized father. As he clumsily tries to break free from this male role model, he shares his father’s stories and disappointments with us, surrounded by cornfields and legends.
L’histoire à finir de Jimmy Jones et de son camion celeste takes us on a road trip that submerges us in a quirky, absurd, and humorous world. We nostalgically rediscover diners, car washes, and drive-ins, which provide plenty of pretexts for poetry and the unexpected.
Running time: 80 minutes
Technique: object theatre
La Pire Espèce is a brotherhood of merry demiurges, artisans of the extraordinary who are firm believers in hybrids and interminglings. Inspired by the art of clowns, by fairground barkers and puppeteers, its theatre combines raw materials with unbridled imagination, baroque plenitude with surgical precision.
