Ti-Gus if off to the park to have a picnic with his sweetheart, but the light of his life is late, and he’s getting hungry. Woe to any who dare disturb him – he doesn’t take kindly to anyone getting in his way. Quite the mischievous character, he will seek revenge against anyone who annoys him. Inspired by the European hand puppet tradition, Ti-Gus au parc is a show that will make children as well as adults laugh.

Since 2014, Noë Cropsal has created a series of seven shows featuring his Ti-Gus character, and has performed these shows more that 800 times in Montréal’s La Fontaine Park. This summer, the artist presents a new version of the first show of the series, Ti-Gus au parc.

Running Time: 30 minutes
Technique: Hand Puppets
