Performance by: Pierre Guillois & Olivier Martin...
Le Fils du Grand Réseau

An imposing Shakespearian actor tells (in incomprehensible English, even to an inhabitant of Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564) of one man’s (his ancestor, perhaps?) incredible centuries-long journey through Europe; a man who, by the banks of a fjord in the remote Faroe Islands (in a particular year which has probably long since been forgotten) is cursed by a mermaid he’d absent-mindedly caught in frozen (yet salty) waters under the paradoxically wonderful auspices of the Northern Lights, which were bejewelled, at that very moment, by a late flight of cranes on their way to Africa.

Think you already know everything that can happen in a comedy? Le Fils du Grand Réseau takes the techniques of delivering a wildly humorous show to another level.
