Pre-Show Information for Teachers

Meticulous clockmaker Leopold Minute finds himself hypnotized by the ticking rhythms of his shop. In his dreaming state he is accompanied by his ever-present conscience, represented musically by the cello and the accordion. Presented by Québec ensemble, L’Aubergine, the performance is rife with the physical clowning for which this company is renown.

The Quebec-based L’Aubergine theatre company was founded in 1974 and has since carved out a unique niche by specializing in clowning theatre performances; to date they have produced over 50 creations.
