Désenfumage3 is a stage, circus, and magic show for six performers. It highlights our relationship with the narrative process and the artifices of cinema by involving the spectator in the confusion of the mise en abyme. Between cinema and society, which has the greater influence on the other? What do the stories we tell ourselves say about us and where does our need for fiction come from?

"Raoul Lambert once again challenges our assumptions with mischief and humor. “
– Thierry Voisin, Télérama Sortir

New magic? Old magic? Mentalism? Mental magic? Illusionism? Prestidigitation? One thing is certain, it is definitely a question of magic! But, above all, a question of a show. And of representation, posture, and imposture. And of weaving an intimate relationship with the audience to create a humorous exploration of our natural propensity for credulity and manipulation as well as our relationship to power.
