CANCELLED Le Gros Orteil: The Librarian

CANCELLED Le Gros Orteil: The Librarian


Paul-Émile Dumoulin has been working at his town’s library for 25 years. He’s serious and nervous, also proud and sometimes so clumsy. Bookshelves must be impeccable, each book in its place.

But pay attention, because when Paul-Emile Dumoulin begins to read, he enters completely in the story and a taste for adventure shows him in another light. He embodies the book’s characters for them to become suddenly very alive and expressing themselves with acrobatics, acrobalance, juggling, break dance and beat box.

A Hilarious show that will make you read by Canadian Le Gros Orteil!

Performance is in Finnish.
