What brings campers back to the same campground each summer, generation after generation? Why live outside for weeks or even months in such close quarters? The answer: friends, BBQ’s, dance nights, and games like pétanque, horseshoes, cards and bingo.
A campground is a place to let loose and be yourself, because it’s finally summer. It’s place to hang out and enjoy, tease, tolerate, endure, or hug your neighbors. A place where human relationships—real ones—are fodder for clowning around. It’s a micro-society where Théâtre À Tempo’s world fits right in.
In our campground, the base of our tents will be Cyr wheels.
We will balance and tiptoe along the clothesline to hang our clothes up to dry.
We will throw condiments from one trailer to the next when we cook on the BBQ.
Our Beach Volleyball will be more acrobatic than at the Olympics.
When the summer is done, we will pack up our folding chairs and picnic tables, throwing ourselves into the air once more before saying : goodbye friends, see you next year.
Thanks to everyone who helped and contributed to making this show a success!
