Chaplin meets Hitchcock meets Spaghetti Western in this fast-paced whodunnit. An intercontinental, inter-genre, cinematic caper of accusations, accidents and accents.Our story follows Roger Clement - a Frenchman in 1950's New York. His days have always followed a highly predictable, yet not-unpleasant, routine - until a minor delay saves him from an explosion - igniting a powder-keg of twists and turns as Roger chases his would-be assassins around the world to discover the truth. Raucously funny and endlessly inventive, this Lecoq-trained theatre company delights and stuns with live music and virtuosic acrobatics.
This short film weaves juggling and object theater with magical realism in a fantastical physical comedy. Based on the 2019 theft of Maurizio Cattelan’s golden toilet (titled “America”) from Britain’s Blenheim Palace, this eccentric devised work probes the boundary between theater and cinema to imagine who could have stolen the lavish lavatory and why.
