Plume’s paintbrush

Clowns and acrobats have a field day in ’l’Atelier du peintre’ (the Artist’s studio), the new show in which Plume, a circus with a reputation for creativity, uses its palette on a new canvas. The show takes the form of a history of art, naïve and in relief, where models painted by Rembrandt, Manet or Picasso, for example, take a perverse pleasure in stepping out of their frame, defying gravity, dancing under a shower of petals or talking to an ancient statue cloned in a mischievous mime.
