Job, family, career, life, dreams
- out there you people are sleeping.
We, la Famille Charivari,
freaks of today, monsters of every day - we will wake you up!
We will show you people EVERYTHING,
all the things that you don’t want to see in your life -
forbidden behaviours and hidden talents,
abnormalities and absurdities, decadence and opulence...
To show you, to remind you, to wake you up and shake you:This is REALITY!
This is NORMALITY! You cannot hide from it!
Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!
To our show, to our life, our family!
We show you our show, we show you our lives.
Our lives are our show, we ARE our show!
We are the freaks of today, the monsters of every day!
the siamese twin sisters - who love each other and never can make out,
the lonely trapeze artist - who never will come down and never will sleep,
the maniac assembleur - collecting rats and mice and bats,
the hunger artist - just sitting in his cage,
the nail eating fakir - torturing the hunger artist - by eating and eating,
the lover of curiosities - making all beauty die,
and others, sisters, brothers, nephews and great-grand-mamas of la famille...
Yes we are the freaks of today, the monsters of every day!
And so are you! Come join our family! We will take you in with open arms!
Come hear our stories, see our shows, join our lives!
Maybe you‘ll learn new languages or hear the mermaids singing...
Don't believe us? Come be audacious, take a risk!
JOIN US - NOW, for a little while!
We will be gone soon - and then, after we are gone,
you can go back to sleep... and sleep... and sleep....
