Project MANTE and KALLE

Project Mante & Kalle is the story of the two remarkable bizarre baroque figures 'Mante and 'Kalle ", walking in any city or country.
The duo is the symbol of decadence, and the shadow side of man.
Both figures they're very pretty, despite of the magnified grey face that they see in their mirror.
This remarkable figures walk in the streets with a shopping cart that has been crammed with fat food, junk food and a number of attributes, such as a mirror and a sunshade.
From the shopping cart, transformed to a Rolls Royce or a Bentley, comes bad music.
During their walk they take a regular break for lunch, a lunch that can get out of hand, just like "la grande bouffe".
The rather "surrealistic" creatures chat against each other the whole time "in a language made by themselves" (jabber talk) and ensure some hilarity to the public that it is always pleasantly surprised.
They criticize everything and everyone.
The costumes and makeup are unique, they're both bald and have huge ears and noses, providing a rather clownish feeling.
It is as if they came out of a painting of Jeroen Bosch or James Ensor and the sphere is like 'Cirque du Soleil ".
Project Mante & Kalle received a price for his parade, and has been hailed by the press as one of the better street theater acts.
In Ghent Mante and Kalle played at the tram.
In present times one of the top productions of Teater Exces.


Two, three, four or five chatting ladies like the Kalle-creature from "Project Mante and Kalle" walk each with their own cart through the streets, making up themselves, eat, dance, read,... and, in particular: the public is not safe for the ladies!

DE TETTERENDE KALLES (Twittering Kalles)

Three Kalles, on stilts and with megaphone, make the environment unsafe.


Mante and Kalle pass through your city or municipality. They planted their caravan somewhere and after having woken up, breakfast and other "tricks", they're ready to explore the environment.
