Good Soup

©Matthew Johnson
Good Soup is an exploration of Molière’s world, both through his words and the music of his time. To celebrate 400 years since his birth, Ensemble Molière joins forces with two clowns to create a 60-minute performance transporting the audience into the playwright’s cosmos. The show investigates Molière’s form of bourgeois comedy, and asks what these narrative structures still have to offer. Bringing together baroque music, absurdist theatre, slapstick and puppetry, Good Soup takes a critical look at our own relationship with catastrophe and the desire to escape into spectacle and happiness.
