A love story unfolds before our eyes between Toyo the construction pipe, Coline the violinist, and Gillou the contortionist! For Coline, Toyo becomes an extension of her instrument; for Gillou, it becomes a shell, a costume, a hat, a balancing act, a dance companion! A show that effuses gentleness and poetry...

After training at the Annie Fratellini circus school, Antoine Rigot and Agathe Olivier worked with several companies before founding Les Colporteurs in 1996. They designed and built the company's big top, and, since then, they have been creating and touring their shows both in France and internationally, either under the big top, in theatres, or in public spaces.
