Sport "Gnafron, papa solo", the new Guignol de Lyon show
His tale of crossing Antarctica was riveting. But how much was fiction?
Colin O’Brady says he crossed Antarctica alone and “unassisted.” Polar experts say he’s embellishing his accomplishments in pursuit of fame.While skiing across Antarctica, American Colin O’Brady, the self-proclaimed first person to ski alone and unassisted across the frozen continent, came to what he describes in his new book The Impossible First, as “a hellish stretch...one of the hardest places on the continent to get across.” A polar wind he estimates at “fifty or even sixty miles an hour” lashed him as he entered a precarious area that was “off the map—unreachable and inaccessible.
The latest creation from the Company M.A. promises its share of surprises. Gnafron, Guignol's best friend, finds himself overnight father of an infant.
At the Théâtre de Guignol in Lyon, each new show offers young spectators incredible adventures. Gnafron, solo dad, tells the story of Guignol's best friend who ends up with a baby. A show where everything that makes the tradition of the Guignol de Lyon is respected with chases and strokes with the stick.
A single dad, a kidnapped baby, in this new show by Guignol, the famous Lyon puppet is subject to many current affairs.
Laurence Besson signs here her first staging of puppet theater. A completely different approach to the scene. "It is a work especially based on the image and the rhythm, it makes one think of the commedia dell'arte, it is very effective", she explains. Behind the castelet, the puppeteers interpret their score and sometimes chain up to seven different characters. "We do the voices, and the manipulations, it's all a skill," says actress Flore Goubeau.
