They’re so different that they could only meet each other. They were good in everything, but not enough, so they decided to become champions of failure.
In Samovar clown school, they forgot everything they once knew, to learn how to be the best at failing. From all this comes this show.
Why “Les GüMs”?
Before all “Les GüMs” refers to the absurd.
It means that one cannot be taken seriously. In a name we searched for what we experience when we feel ridiculous, that vulnerability which frightens us. We wanted to provoke in people the surge of feelings the public experiences when seeing a clown: laughter and compassion at the same time.
Hence the ambiguity in that name. It is also a choice to deconstruct the intellect. Anyway, what is this all about? Nothing!
