Guided by enigmatic arrows, a scrap-collector steers his Tricycle and trailer to the opening of a fantastical maze filled with illusions. A dream-like adventure begins.

The tricycle guides the man through his life journey as if it were an uncanny ride at a fairground; through the house of mirrors, the carousels, and the games of chance leading him through the dark shadows of his past towards his quest for freedom and into the light.


Tricyckle is a spectacle of metamorphosis and transformation using objects and puppetry. Visual theatre without words, the show was conceived to be performed in theatres and also unusual nonconventional spaces.

Tricyckle's intriguing musical score is composed solely of invented instruments created with found objects.


Interpretation: Jacob Brindamour

Staging and puppets: South Miller

Set design and props: Sylvain Longpré

Music: Christian Laflamme

"This is a deeply personal, playful and utterly
charming insight into one man’s life traipsing
from one base to another. (...) Often surreal,
always playful and nothing short of endearing,
Tricyckle does exactly what it sets out to do."

Shane Morgan, Bristol 24/7

"Loved the gentle, intelligent, hypnotic
Les Sages Fous Tricyckle...
it's on again tomorrow - see it if you can"

Phil Gibby
South west director of Arts Council England
Bristol Festival of Puppetry

"Les Sages Fous deliver a life
trip in a bewitching hour."

Tricyckle is dedicated to the men in our city of Trois-Rivières, who, with their old tricycles and handmade trailers are solitary treasure seekers, renegades, living beneath the radar.
