Paris: the star of the Merabet theater

“Scandal,” the Paris Animals Zoopolis Association (PAZ), which for several days condemned the use of cleats, this huge wild bird from Africa, declared in a theatrical performance on Thursday, May 19 at the Montfort Theater (15th).

For several days, the Paris Animals Zoopolis Association (PAZ) – which works for animal welfare – has been fighting to ban a theatrical performance organized this Thursday at the Montfort Theater, located on Briançon Avenue, in the heart of Georges-Brassens Park. xv), one of the main players is the clematis, this huge wild bird from Africa.

“The Montfort Theater presents a show with studs and pets,” the association denounced, stressing that the Paris municipality allowed this show, although it “announced the termination of the use of non-domesticated animals in performances in its venues. To the city of Paris in 2019.”

From Thursday until June 11th, the Promesco Theater Troupe presents their show “Le Jour du Grand Jour” in the courtyard of Georges Brassens, which has seen the stable of the company that owns many wild animals, including this cleats. installed in a cage.

“Theatre, a wizard, a fool”

The Fairground Theater is described as “zany,” which features various animals that are “all domesticated” that belong to the troupe. “There is also, and always in the house, wine, and music and about animals, and dreams, and lightness, and laughter, and a lot of depth too,” we can read in the description of the show.

For the PAZ association, which “demands the withdrawal of all animals on this parade”, the important thing is first of all to fight the domestication of wild animals. A symbol of these activists explaining that “captive wild birds” are brutally separated from their peers and sometimes “psychologically broken” from birth.

We quote the Federation of Veterinarians in Europe (FVE) who explained in 2015 that “captive wild animals have the same genetic heritage as their wild counterparts. So they have the same needs.”

If the mayor of the fifteenth arrondissement of Paris, Philippe Goujon, had on his part issued an unfavorable opinion regarding the installation of this company in his district, then the Central Town Hall on its part ratified the offer.

Trained, tamed, or domesticated?

“It is scandalous that the City of Paris would allow such a show, organized by a Parisian theater, on the land belonging to the city, when in 2019 they announced that it would never happen again” – founder of PAZ at Le Parisien.

When asked about this by our colleagues, the deputy mayor of Paris in charge of the animal case, Christophe Najdowski, replied that this cleat is “a very special case, even unique”. “The animal is not trained to perform a number, it is completely domesticated. It has lived with its owners for thirty-three years, ”notes the chosen one.

You confuse ‘tamers’ and ‘domesticated’, for its part defines the PAZ Association, which governs Christoph Njdovsky’s declaration of ‘scientifically inaccurate’ in terms of ‘the Almoravids are savages’.

It is difficult to know who holds the exact science on this issue, while the troupe of the Promesco Theater – held by the couple Igor and Lily promoted Knight of Arts and Letters by the Ministry of Culture – is rightly recognized throughout Europe for displaying with his animals, and in particular his bird.

For the theater that defended itself with the Parisian commune, “the animal is not forced to play a role, it enters the scene and goes naturally to its owners as it does on a daily basis. He climbs on their backs, sits on their lap, and leaves the stage.
