A BRUSSELS-BASED THEATRE COMPANY WITH A SPECIAL FONDNESS FOR PHYSICAL COMEDY AND SLAPSTICK.
The joy of looking at the absurd fights and chaotic chases, the idiotic accidents, the daring stunts and the timeless throwing around of dishes and cream pies by artists such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, Laurel & Hardy, the Marx brothers, Jacques Tati, the Three Stooges, Abbott & Costello, Lewis & Martin, Tommy Cooper, Rowan Atkinson, Monty Python and many more is the basis of Compagnie Charlie.
Inspired by these pioneers and trained as actors in the Jacques Lecoq tradition, we bring our own idiocy onto the stage, with one aim in mind: to make both the public and ourselves laugh.
That’s the heartbeat of Compagnie Charlie !
“"The most fun and astonishing performance on the outdoor stage, an absolute hit!"”Theater Aan Zee
“"'Peek-a-Boo' is a boxing match simmering in a delicious retro sauce and gleaming like a yellowed fairground attraction or a steaming family circus from the days when the grizzly bear still wore a red Turkish fez. On top of the visual fireworks,, every action is skilfully bracketed by the ingenious bruitage. The performance is an express train of visual gags, clownery, acrobatics and from front to back so entertaining that the three-quarters of an hour of is over in no time. 'Peek-a-Boo' is at once very physical and poetic theatre and in every detail captures the imagination of a very wide audience."”Het Nieuwsblad
