Le Carnaval des Animaux / Un Gâteau pour Cubitus
  • Edinburgh Fringe

French bande desine authors Michel Rodrigue and Michel Janvier bring some of the most memorable characters from French comics (Cubitus, Rantanplan, Marsupilami, Boule and Bill) from the page to the puppet stage. Proposing the double bill of a comedic take on Camille Saint-Sans Le Carnaval des animaux and a new work, Un Gteau pour Cubitus (A Cake for Cubitus), Rodrigue and Janvier celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous dog (Tintin) and le 9e art in general. Post-show meetings with the puppeteers and bande dessine masterclasses accompany this show.
