Tutti Frutti 1 is omnipresent and omnipotent. It is around us and in the depths of our souls too.In front of us, we will see Tutti Frutti 2 assume the form of a tonic and swirling mix of four circus artists with super capacities, a sort of a salad of improbable ingredients 3 , well spiced with spontaneity and absurd logic.This explosive form allows the spectators to live moments of strong dramatic intensity, a jubilant and liberating humor, which makes people laugh but sometimes also cringe.We will accompany bourgeois having fun in a castle, an army of bananas who are training to save the world, a charlatan who thinks he is a spiritual guide, or quite simply four excited energumens who hack plastic objects.Tutti Frutti 4 is also a permanent and frenetic quest to have the Power 5 .
With their unwavering charisma, these people place themselves at the center of the contradictions of our society to break them from within.
All with the signature of the LPM company, Extreme Poetry 6
