In the pure tradition of the greatest comical duos like Arlecchino & Brighella, Footit & Chocolat, Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy, Jerry Lewis & Dean Martin we discover Tanja Simma and Hélène Gustin as Anna de Lirium & Colette Gomette in a hilarious combination of female clown power. After their encounter at two international Festivals in Brasil in 2014* these two real masters of visual clown art have decided to join forces. 2 grand clowns - instantly captivating just by their appearance: Anna, tall and with generous curves, and the petite Colette are inseparable. The first is naive and rather slow, the latter speedy and a bit mischievous. What seems to be an insurmountable obstacle, is in reality two sides of the same coin - they belong together like yin and yang. While these two ladies try to reach their goal, which is nothing more than playing a flute, we perceive the wide range of human relations. The performers' wealth of experience and their simplicity on the stage allow wisdom and universality to shine through every moment of their act. *"Palhaçaria" in Recife and "Encontro Internacional de Mulheres Palhaças" in São Paulo
