ARM - Mireille et Mathieu 3*** - One4Review
one4review | On 23, Aug 2017
We walk into the Demonstration Room and are faced with the makings of a flea market with items in various states of repair. This becomes the absurdist playground of Mireille and Mathieu as they use Ken and Barbie dolls to reenact the Crucifixion, an old cot becomes a wrestling ring as two baby dolls slug it out, socks become the presidents of the United States (the smelliest one being Donald Trump) and blankets become snoring heads. There is much to amuse the audience in this show as Mireille and Mathieu are talented puppeteers and no one can fault the energy they bring to their performance, however as the show only lasted 50 minutes and one set piece was played out 3 times (which wasn’t even the funniest part of their show) I felt it could have had more substance. Lets have more of the WWE dolls!
