TONBOLA (2020)

A brutal satire of Europe

Life is a tonbola and we will turn yours upside down. We don’t care who you are, what you are, or even what you want to be.

Let this TOMBOLA decide on your behalf!

We wanted to talk about Europe. About Europe’s borders and territories. We wanted to talk about freedom, human movements, migrations, empathy, solidarity, etc.

Who would have told us then that doubt could be cast on the truth of those words?

Cést fini la tonterie!


A POETIC CABARET that knows no borders. A combination between humour and nonconformity, the absurd and raw realism.
