Pas perdus
A circus show mixing theater carpentery and tenderess

The boxes remember
the time where
they were trees, men remember they
will end in a box.
So they play, laughing, climbing
trees, building and riding wooden
horses or sailing on fragile boats,
with passion and virtuosity, with
you, with salt and a joyful hunger, to
swallow the world in a big laugh.

Pas Perdus a tourné pendant 6 ans, de 2007 à et 2013, en Belgique, en France, en Suisse, au Luxembourg, aux Pays-Bas, en Italie, en Espagne, au Portugal, en Angleterre, aux Etats-Unis, à Singapour, au Japon. En juillet 2008, le spectacle faisait partie de la programmation du Théâtre des Doms au Festival Off d’Avignon et en août 2010, il était présenté en Ecosse au Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

This is a production which has been honed to perfection, yet it still carries a frisson of danger. […] Les Argonautes manage to be accessible to all without dumbing down, intelligent yet beautifully simple. But ultimately, nothing written down on paper could do full justice to the craft on display here, you’ll just have to go an see it yourself.

The comedy is so clever, so assured, that the actual musical virtuosity comes as a surprise and a bonus.
