Acts Available Include:
At last concert piano hits the streets! The motorised pianist, it plays, it glides, it turns and it waltzes. Surprising, entertaining and elegant the motorised pianist improvises, flowing with the streets and smiles, for the enjoyment of grownups and little ones. In his fingers, Mozart, Django, Trénet, Schubert, Kurt Weil…
The motorised pianist, the streetwalker of Vienna, the pedlar of London, the pavement monger of Paris, he is here, in your town, and he is playing for you. This is a highly mobile, musical and poetic show.

Piano De Feu
Piano de feu is, above all, poetry. Poetry on wheels. It is a visual and musical performance, moving from streets to market squares, alleyways, parks, cities, villages, festivals, riversides and fields. Poetry and dream in a meandering musical show.
In the street, on town squares, even in your garden if you have room! Real fire, real sound, real words. A symphonic revolution, industrialisation of word and a cultural epidemic. The note-maker pushes a baroque stage which carries the voices of the world. He’ll settle on a street corner with his magic anvil, sparks under his foot and a canon full of words. He plays a farce, called “OPUS1 and OPUS2.
