Zapptime Remix

As it is necessary to take up challenges and as Philippe Ménard is
very playful, he wrote in 2005 « Zapptime Remix » a continuation of «
Zapptime, rêve éveillé d’un zappeur ». This play was produced in one of
the Lieu Unique’s studios.

Zapping still the heart of the play, but yet kneaded, quirky, uncluttered, tinkered with and built up again.

As for the members of the audience, they are in a kind of black box
and they breathe to the rhythm of the two associated jugglers and of
their playmates, a sort of referees, who use many and various
techniques.

From one world to another, audience is mentally taken for a walk,
whereas we live in a very physical world, full of illusions, derision
and humour… a world where life is very real !
