2nd year students in a professional training will present :
Staging : Christian Coumin.
Initiated by the city of Toulouse, Lido opens its doors in 1988. Supported by the Midi-Pyrénées region and DRAC, the Lido of Toulouse became a place of privileged European artistic training during the last few years. Of the companies and artists from or accompanied by Lido, we can mention Morgan Cosquer et Etienne Manceau – Cie Sacékripa, Guillaume Martinet – Cie Defracto, the group Petit Travers, Toi d’abord, Tide Company, la cie Singulière, Cie 111, and the Subliminati Corporation.
The approach of the vocational school is oriented towards the artist, looking for a personal signature and an artistic authenticity. It relies on circus techniques while revisiting theater, dance, music, and other creative forms, which influence and enrich the artistic proposals of the contemporary scene without losing the specificity of the circus. The Lido supports its students in finding a personal style, creating a specific body language in a circus comedian.
« My common sense » is a show created by the students in the end of their year of vocational training. It’s a collective creation guided by Christian Coumin that marks the end of two years of training. After a tour that will bring them up to Scandinavia, the EP2 will return to Toulouse to premiere their shows.
During the whole convention, find the EP2 and the “lidotiens” under Lido’s tent!
