With Patrice Thibaud and Philippe Leygnac

Patrice Thibaud and Philippe Leygnac could be Laurel and Hardy in French. One is awkward and a bit shy. The other is clever and lively. 
Without a word, they size each other up, they are annoyed, they flee to research- expensive as they no longer see. Both play, dream or play to dream. 
They cross the Tour de France, a July 14 parade, majorettes, fireworks, sea lions, cowboys or tawny trainers. Cocorico is a show based on the body of Patrice Thibaud virtuosity and sense of observation, which evokes with humor and poetry hopes and faults, our habits and perdition, our ma- ned and our affection. Musical devil, the duet between a child like grown too fast and explosive player, relying on the collective memory, in the tradition of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati.

A piano, three panels, few accessories; Cocorico is a show without words, while humor and delicacy, which is heavily corporal game and music, with the invention of the actor and the imagination of audiences of all ages, taking in a jubilant delirium.

For Cocorico, Patrice Thibaud surrounds the musician Philippe Leygnac and directors Michele Guigon and Susy Firth, a team at the height of his creativity to create a burlesque show which has already attracted thousands of spectators worldwide.

Patrice Thibaud and Philippe Leygnac do their gentle madness a pleasure shared by the public. From almost nothing that is, the time of Cocorico, great art.

Doubly awarded a Herald Angel at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2009) and an award at the Montreux Comedy Festival (2012) as the best visual spectacle, Cocorico was played more than 450 times worldwide.
