Séance BOUQUET MYSTÈRE

À moins d’avoir immolé sa carte bleue ou de s’être exilé au Népal, nul bipède humain n’échappe à la loi des redoutables « courses du samedi » (les études sont formelles). Comme nous avons à coeur de vous faire oublier cette épreuve, nous vous invitons à une fl ânerie plus douce dans un marché aux saveurs où se mêlent rêveries, fantaisies, légendes et autres incongruités. Ça repose, ça étonne, ça détonne mais ça fait du bien à la tête et aux mirettes.

Restez sur vos gardes et conservez votre stock de neuroleptiques à portée de main. Ils cherchent à vous les chaparder.

Séance ADROITS DANS LE MUR

L’humanité et la perfection ont autant en commun qu’un blobfish et Amanda Seyfried. Cette séance confirme (à peu près) ce funeste constat. Dans ces courts récits, tumultueux et délirants, les personnages luttent pour leur survie avec toute l’énergie du désespoir. Leur ingénuité confine à la bêtise crasse ou à l’inconséquence la plus désastreuse. Ça nous fait rire, ça nous scandalise, ça nous fait vibrer mais ça nous rapproche aussi du pire de nous-mêmes (ce qui est assez réconfortant).
