On Wednesday 28th March, around 150 young and old alike attended the public rehearsal of The Strongman from the British company [*Bash Street Theatre*] in the courtyard of the Patronage Laïque du Pilier Rouge, Brest. This very first rehearsal of The Strongman is the result of one week and a half of residence at Le Fourneau. Some details are still not settled here and there but the most important was there !

Drawing its inspiration from the silent movies of the 20’s, this show plunges us into a travelling circus world. Looking for a strong man, a greedy director and his daughter from a small circus, meet a vagrant. The vagrant and the young lady will quickly become infatuated with each other and try to escape with the money stolen by the director.

Combining all the codes of a silent film : live music, body expressions close to mime, written indications on panels, The Strongman has succeeded in bringing together all the generations around the show. From chases at a slow pace to tricks and acrobatics, the Bash Street Theatre presents a show in black and white… highly colourful !
