After his first Fringe experience in Two Johnnies Live Upstairs in 2011 ★★★★ (Scotsman), Benoit Hattet returns to the Institut français as Joseph C Merrick, the famous British monster better known as Elephant Man. In this intimate and interactive show, you are invited to the creature’s room and welcomed by his nurse (Isabelle Bouvrain). She is a bit tyrannical but also completely devoted to him. Joseph is impatient to meet you. But control your emotions! And keep smiling … Joseph is a very sensitive creature. Feel free to ask him some questions, he will answer with plenty of humour… Ages 12+.
Compagnie du Fomenteur / Benoit Hattet, Isabelle Bouvrain.
