The Theatre de la Jeune Lune
recently held a rummage sale to liquidate 30 years of stage props and other supplies. After a champagne toast inaugurating the sale, a clown was thrown off the building's roof. "It's Jeune Lune's last gesture," said Jeune Lune founder Dominique Serrand. He ordered that nobody touch the fallen clown, but then he himself later moved it into a more aesthetically pleasing position and drew a chalk line around it.
