1)incoherency २)understanding

Just saw superbe James Thieree show, clowning with some of the very French humour of his grandad.

Here's the Sadler's Wells snip which gives a sense of it. The bit with the rocking chair is... MAGIC (if magic is the unwilling suspension of disbelief?):

There was something really liberating in the incoherency of Au Revoir Parapluie. Having the frame of mostkulture broken. Minus narrative, superficially interiorized characters, punchlines etc, normal understanding goes out the window.
