Francophile Friday: A Christmas Surprise!


My little village in France has got some Christmas spirit going on. After dropping le fil off at rugby practice, we rounded the corner to find seven drummers and one super limber aerial artist practicing their act...while hanging from a crane about three hundred feet in the air.



The troupe is called 'Transe Express' and their organic mobile-like set is reminiscent of the American sculptor/painter Alexander Calder.


The vivid colors of Calder are captured by the drummers, who are costumed like court jesters.




Naturally, we had to come back for the night performance, which did not disappoint.




To bring you into the experience, here's a video I found of the performance:




Happy Holidays, Tout le Monde! May the season be filled with excitement and unexpected surprises! Gros Bisous!
