Le déroulement du spectacle

L'ÔBSERVATOIRE CROSPORG (The Crosporg Observatory)

Circular explosive intimate show 

The Crosporg Observatory is:

A 40-minute intimate show for 23 spectators,
A gritty and offbeat farce, accessible to any 10 + citizen,
A show combining artillery and manipulation of all kinds
Between the military parade, the reception with eau de toilette and Ferrero Rocher, teleshopping, the cabinet of military curiosities, the audience becomes a passive accomplice of one of the greatest human abominations: the arms trade.

An unusual experience, grotesque and terrifying, to watch from the outside with your legs inside ...

The story
The Ambassadors of the 23 most powerful countries of this planet are invited to the Annual Armament Fair of the Crosporg Laboratory (Research Laboratory for Military Innovation, led by Jean-Louis Crosporg, a leading arms manufacturer).

The researchers / secret agents of the Crosporg Laboratory (Mr Smith, Roselyne and Sr. Angèle Rompillon) present their latest discoveries in artillery. Included: escornifleur à pompes, décallotteuse, spiked helmet, and other state-of-the-art missiles.

Guests will be able to enjoy an amazing special offer on the latest model of the playful and educational “game box”, which turns out to be a real Pandora's box.

Inside this diabolical playroom: who plays what, and what are the toys?
