With a large dose of physical comedy, flexible bodies and hairy creations, M.P.A.C. creates a clown show for the 21st Century. Hairy Tales is about head hair and body hair – shaved, overgrown, dyed and lost. By putting standards of hair under the microscope and sharing personal experiences, a comic story is revealed on the boundary between theatre, circus and performance art.

The artistic company
M.P.A.C. creates original works of performing arts through a devising process steeped in a standard critical and feminist approach. Their main artistic expression is clown. They see the clown as anarchistic by nature, acting as a kind of social conscience and existing in contact with the audience. Through playful connection the clown releases and relieves.
