WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Marcel is a poignant two-hander about the collision of clowning and mortality. Jos Houben and Marcello Magni, who starred in Samuel Beckett's Fragments at Theatre for a New Audience, are comic masters and original members of the famed Theatre de Complicité. In Marcel, they play an aging physical comedian and his inscrutable, clipboard-wielding nemesis mysteriously enjoined to test him with a battery of absurd tasks. Slapstick here meets the limits of age.

The Art of Laughter is a comedy about comedy — part performance and part master class — about what makes audiences laugh. Performing in English, Houben dissects everyday life — a baby's first steps, a man falling in a restaurant, the essence of various cheeses — revealing why laughter is at the core of our humanity.
