Les Frères Pyters Though they’ve never left their farm in the Grésivaudan, the Pyters Brothers, think of themselves as aviators, while they watch with envy the paragliders that fly overhead. Will they dare take the big jump themselves?
Cie Mademoiselle Paillette White shadows, gluttonous; with or without stilts, watch while these jovial characters balance on a tightrope with great artfulness and ease.
