This mime duo is France’s answer to the Addams Family, combining slapstick comedy with wacky tricks and sensational acrobatics. The name of the show translates as 'to the happiness of living', and this energetic and positive outlook on life ensures hysterical laughter throughout in this feel-good extravaganza.

The absurd comedy alongside dazzling illusions is the perfect way to kick back and enjoy something of a lighter nature after a tough day in hectic Shanghai.

France’s EUROPE 1 national radio station called the show: “Goofy, delusional, and imaginative: a waking dream, very funny and surprising,” whilst national paper Le Monde claimed it was “a matchless poetical fantasy”.
