J'aurais voulu être un Gougoune


New dates for 2019-2020 coming up soon !

A music and theater performance for 9 to 99 year-olds, “J’aurais voulu être un Gougoune” initiates one and all to Sorcier Gougoune’s terrifically chaotic – if not “quasi-Dadaist” – world. Drawing on a wide range of influences, it combines naïve and art music forms. With its sets and costumes, its custom-made instruments, and most importantly its multi-skilled performers, the show reawakens the spirit of fairgrounds and travelling theatre. For one hour, the adventures of this relentless and quixotic magician will revive family story-telling traditions where all are actively engaged in making fantasy worlds come to life.
