They call him Billy Fog. He likes solitude, night, rain, and melancholy. He loves to make mischiefs to his younger sister Jane and sink ants in chocolate saliva. He’s not bad, ‘he just has a character’. And he has a gift-the gift of trouble sight. In the past he had a cat, Tarzan, who was his best friend. And one day – Billy found Tarzan stiffened in the garden.
What happens with the cat’s soul after the death? And most of all-what is death? Do we all have to go THERE?
Shadow show for those who are ten years old (or were in the past), for those who have lost a cat, a hamster or a parrot and those who wish to outsmart death and lock it up in a hermetic jar.
Performance bases on the comic book ‘Billy Fog and trouble sight gift’ by Guillaume Bianco (original title: ‘Billy Brouillard. Trouble Le Don de Vue’) which won an award for best French-speaking comic in Angouleme Festival (2011).
