The groupe Karol Karol is a company founded by Caroline Breton and Charles Chemin. 

They conceive shows between theater and dance, with subjects where fiction and reality collide, and where space and time are unstable parameters. The staging concepts rely directly on the singularity of the people present on stage, their lives, stories, through improvisations. They look inside the humans to unveil the mysterious dimension of their actions and perceptions. Caroline and Charles indistinctly write choreographic scores, write or use texts, use improvisation, collage, interview people or shut up. Any material is potentially an appropriate mean for introducing the "outside world" into the performance.
