Miss Doly

Marcel et ses Drôles de Femmes

Saturday 29 and sunday 30 March



Miss Dolly is a 35-minute stage form based on the aerial cradle and the Korean cradle. It plays outside.
On stage: 4 characters, Dolly, John, the girl, and Jimmy. A few snippets of chewed-up English from a western à la Tennessee Williams and even a piece played by hunting horns.

With them, some apples, wit, acrobatics,
Absurdity, wind,
A stale love story,
A lost horse…
Dolly waits up in the cradle.
John: Do you still love me?
Jimmy finds a gun, doesn’t understand.
The girl: I lost my horse.
She takes Dolly’s hands and jumps.
Too full of emptiness
Just a creaking
A feeling, not much
On the horizon,
Nonchalant bodies contemplating the deserted
Infinite emptiness suspended from the void
Bodies take flight almost in spite of themselves
An absurd impulse
Indifference to death,
Unfinished words,
A horse…


Voltigeuse : Marine Fourteau
Voltigeuse et régie son : Liza Lapert
Porteuse au cadre aérien : Garance Hubert-Samson
Porteur au portique coréen : Marcel Vidal Castells


Marcel et ses Drôles de Femmes is a quartet, four people from Normandy, Gers, and Catalonia. They met at the School for Circus Arts in Rosny-Sous-Bois and continued their training at the National Center for Circus Arts in Châlons-en-Champagne.
After graduating in 2013, they created the company Marcel et ses Drôles de Femmes in Rouen, as well as their show, Miss Dolly. They are also preparing a new, indoor creation planned for October 2015.
