Duration | 60 min.
In Turakie, loving behaviour is inspired by the courtship display observed in the animal kingdom and among humans. Our gaze falls upon a table, which sets the scene for these love stories. Cupid is at the table. He has a long face, is quite rude, looking out only for himself, and goes about tainting the reputation of the diners but, nevertheless, uses the finest silverware and tries to arrange the courtships as best he can.

Michel Laubu was born in Creutzwald in 1961, in the department of Moselle, in France. In 1979, he created his first show with objects and puppets. Five years later, he created travelling show Le Poulailler, the “Chicken Coop” (in a suitcase) and toured Germany for five weeks. It was his first «audiovisual show without speech».
