Life of Petso
Emeric Thuret is Petso. In his life clown appears with or without red nose, inviting and offering opportunities to meet, laugh and love.
Clown evokes the paradox of deep sadness and joy united. Clown is present. Ordinary and simple. Letting things be, come and go like a mirror reflecting things as they are. Unbearable tenderness. Dancing in the sky's vastness, laughter arises, echoes and disappears.
The art of clown came to Emeric unexpectedly in high school, in France, when his mathematic teacher proposed theater clown classes. Ever since, Emeric have been studying and traveling through graphic school, sociocultural anthropology, circus pedagogy, dance, drawing, meditation and clown.
Selling performance tickets, taking care of children, serving and selling organic food, driving a yellow school bus, dancing, painting, teaching circus, the clown continues to make its journey within.
In his clown, Emeric combines his skills and experience creating poetry within ordinary situations, as a reflection of our common dreams.
His current project, Petso Dreaming Show, arises as an interplay between artistic mediums and what is experienced from a clown's point of view, on the stage and in life.
So far this project have been offered to the audience in festivals, under circus tent and on theater stage, but also in child care centers, preschools, schools and hospitals.
Emeric also teaches his skills in workshops, private lessons, and as part of team building events.
In his life and work, Emeric is inspired to bring about our natural tenderness, joy and laughter.
