Les Madeleines de Poulpe

Acrobats on skis, a musical saw, not very unusual ingredients right?

The recipe of Les Madeleines de Poulpes is all about finding the right balance, between air straps and Chinese pole, between tango on skis and live music, between laughter and poetry.

From a children's counting rhyme song to the greatest classic hits of Sinatra, through current revisited tubes and acoustic music, the five cheerful artists immerse you into a visual and dynamic show. They welcome you into their burlesque world which includes just the right combination of ingredients.

The recipe is now written… You only have one thing left to do: savor these madeleines. Every bite is a hymn to pleasure and discovery!

Kadavresky is a French circus company founded by five young versatile artists. Kadavresky's performances are a mix of acrobatics, music and circus such as clown, straps, juggling, Chinese pole and even acrobatics on skis!

Their idiosyncratic way of working, based on improvisation and experimentation, led to their first joint creation L’Effet Escargot in 2012.

L'Effet Escargot is a humorous circus performance made up of apparent coincidences. Extraordinary surprises follow crazy acrobatics and burlesque situations in an absurd logic. In France, Kadavresky has performed more than 250 performances with L'Effet Escargot and about 50 times abroad. In 2018, the company embarked on a new adventure with its second creation: Les Madeleines de Poulpe.
