Please (don’t) let me be (mis)understood

In Please (don’t) let me be (mis)understood three figures perform the intrinsic frenzy of being human. To do so, they revert to an old, almost extinct, tradition: clowning. Using the clown’s nonsensical language and wobbly body, with gleeful recklessness and frivolous pretence, they make their way through human history and beyond. Please (don’t) let me be (mis)understood is a physical performance in which human bodies step out of their banks to play non-human relationships as well. Everything with the clown’s wink.
