Ballet Poulet by Fanzini Productions
Ballet Poulet -  Fanzini Productions

Two world class Olympian-level idiots bring to you their latest masterpiece. She has prepared a poetic, delicate and tender ballet. He has prepared a bad ass display of mayhem. She loves dancing, he loves chickens. Nut-cracking and Swan Faking their way into your lives, these two will make you really question which came first…her tutu or his toupée?
Directed by Joe Dieffenbacher and performed by Con Horgan and Kim Mc Cafferty.
