BOUCAN is an explosive cocktail of physical theater, contemporary circus, live music, time travel, and above all, comedy. Originally based on Beckett's Waiting for Godot, BOUCAN quickly developed into an original experience of love and laugher where together we expose the great absurdity - and beauty - of life.
At the whim of the DJ the three partiers sail between memories and the task at hand recollecting the night before. Absurd revelations, improbable situations, unexpected cascades of comedy, help from the audience —everything will be done to share the madness of celebration and reveal the personalities, relationships, and the story which caused the destruction.
