CIRQUE PHÉNIX - LE ROI DES SINGES
Sat. 7th - Sun. 8th December 2019
It is in China, in the mountains of flowers and fruits, that Sun Wu Kong is born, otherwise known as the Monkey King. Facetious and undisciplined, he suffers the supreme sentence of remaining locked up for five hundred years under the Five Fingers Mountain. At the same time, a monk called Tang, friend of the Emperor, has to go to India to find some sacred texts, which he must translate into Chinese. In order to fulfil this duty, he employs the services of four turbulent disciples. First, the Monkey King, whom he rescues first and who swears fidelity in return, then the Dragon Horse, the Pig-Boar, and the Distracted Dragon. The journey continues, punctuated by encounters with many creatures, each more picturesque than the next. They will experience funny and fantastic adventures right to the end of their journey. It is this story, drawn from one of the four most famous novels of China that Cirque Phénix will recount. An epic, comic, acrobatic show that suits all generations of spectators.
