A guinguette or a “caboulot”.
In any case, we willingly serve you a drink.
On the bar there is a peanuts distributor,
but these are nuts (M10) instead of peanuts.
This bistro has a funny look of a mechanical cabaret.
Two characters move about on both sides.
One day, it will open, for sure.
And I guarantee that there will be things worse than kid’s dreams,
better than a drunkard’s nightmare.
Au comptoir modeste, it is :
– a creation planned for spring 2022,
– a fixed show for 2 actors and a giant music box,
– a variable geometry proposal made up of several thumbnails,
And also :
– a traveling mechanical cabaret open to other artists.
In July 2021, Pepe Martinez offered a theatrical concert to inaugurate this cabaret (see slideshow). A version available now !
