street performances on danse macabre with stilts and fire.
Charivari is a performance based on the duality of life and death.
It is based on the tradition of the dance macabre and Hellequin myth. Hellequin is the chief dead soldier who leads the dead army which visits earth once a year and creates chaos and disruption.
It is this moment of upheaval which creates the conditions for life to start again.
Death is the big taboo in our contemporary society, however in speaking about death one can realize how vital it is to live life to the full.
