Curriculum Connections: Ripopée is a hilarious clownish tale that sees imaginations run wild and audiences of all ages crying with laughter. Four artists arrive at the theatre at night and fall asleep on stage, only to discover upon waking that their audience has already arrived! The show begins, but things get all mixed up, forcing the artists down new and unpredictable paths. Since 1974, L’aubergine has presented over 50 innovative and award-winning clown shows and are one of Canada’s oldest theatre companies dedicated to family and children’s entertainment.
