Grand Magasin – Ouvert pour inventaire

Paris 19th – Le Plateau (art gallery)


By Nicolas Villodre


The duo, now a trio, takes humor very seriously; it blows the dust off the cabaret routines of yesteryear! Those of knife throwers, singers, clumsy magicians, self-taught musicians, ventriloquists a with puckered lips… Grand Magasin doesn’t do Lac des singes but an art of the absurd that is, let’s say, in the tradition of Jonathan Swift, Stuart Sherman, via Princess Sappho, Alfred Jarry, Richard Huelsenbeck, Maurice Lemaitre, Jean-Baptiste Thiérrée, Joe Pass, etc., etc…[/one_half_last]
