Made in Earth
One clown show with and by Méningue
Allow us to say a few words about a show that has no words !Made In Terre

Not just a show, it is about poetry, a completely original story. Narrated in comic and burlesque form, the language used is body, gestural and emotional. The world of the clown is always present with all of its paradoxes, dramas and nonsense. The story, like all stories of its type, is simple and complex at the same time… like that of human beings ! He, the living human being is forever taken in by a trap of his own making – “power” – this dominion that humans never cease to construct, to expect and to impose. Unfortunately however, he too often forgets the other great power – that of life –this creative energy from which all is born and which comes home to roost when it is ignored. The show is a caricature of human evolution and of the actual world, as well as its contradictions and absurdities, that is narrated in an evocative and absorbing style. Situations of every type follow. We rediscover Adam and his conscience reincarnated in Dominator, simultaneously attracted and frightened by weapons. After the advertising spot, here we have Guido Giusto who mimics game shows on television. The grand finale is the arrival of Discoman, a crazed dancer who can’t suppress his own explosive vitality.

Made in Terre is his new theatre performance composed of new sketches constructed around the plot of his first solo, Le Bouffon du Royaume Terre (The Jester of Earth Kingdom); there have been more than 700 performances in Europe since its creation in 1990.
Méningue, already the idol of many children and charmer of adults, harks from French mime tradition and arrived in Italy some years ago. Méningue, clown of our times, is like a sponge that absorbs the various and varied aspects of humanity: a thousand masks, a thousand walks, a thousand postures, a thousand conditions of the soul. Gestural artist, Méningue finds inspiration in the refinement of Chaplin as well as in the anarchical traits of Totò.
