Like a fish takes to flying

It isn't just the prerogative of philosophers or those who lie on a therapist's couch: as we daydream or chase sleep we all eventually come to ponder the meaning of life. At least our own.
We ask ourselves safe questions with no scary answers. Or perhaps difficult questions that don't really have an answer. Until our daily routine comes off the rails and propels us, stumbling and unsteady, to the very edge of the unfathomable depths of meaning.
Out of the churned depths that rise to the surface we can then start to make out, like a sea monster glimpsed between choppy waves, forbidden answers...which are the essence of the tragi-comedy that is our mundane existence.
An interactive one-man comedy show where the audience partners with the performer, borrowing from Desproges and Woody Allen. A deep dive into our superficial lives, exploring themes such as psychoanalysis, house cleaning, God, boredom, philosophy, love, politics ...
A semiologist and a writer, Jean-Pierre Martinez has created a unique theatrical universe borrowing and blending elements from light comedy, black humour and the absurd. A powder-keg of a mix that is seducing an ever increasing audience.
