Scratch Company is founded in 2013 by 7 jugglers. Their first creation T.N.T. was created the same year. In 2017, the company created SPLIT!
The company’s universe is based on scratch, juggling, silly choreography, anti climax and Belgian surrealism. They have fun staging everything and anything, always remembering that anything is possible but not just everything.
After two collective creations, Mousse is a solo or almost a solo. Gaëlle is accompanied on stage by Denis, the technician. Denis is his best friend.
The juggler – likes to listen to the “old” French song that everyone finds old-fashioned, wash dishes in hot water, want to take a bath, ride a bike when the ground is flat and not too long, watch people through the bus or tram window, seeing this lady running and not arriving before the doors close, watching her reaction, doing backcross and three-ball sholder, thinking that the lady who missed her bus is going to get cold because it’s raining and wondering why she was in such a hurry, finally not take a bath, eat cheese, eat pasta, eat cheese pasta, eat cheese pasta, think that if she opened a cheese pasta restaurant and only that, she could make a fortune in this concept, fall in love, go to the supermarket and imagine the life of people waiting in line by analyzing their shopping cart, thinking that this person who buys only yogurt and croquettes for his cat seems to have a sad life, the smell of gas stations, be alone and swim until his head turns.
The juggler – doesn’t like to empty the dishwasher (but that was especially when she was a little girl, now she’s going to), open the fridge and see that there’s no food, that it’s too hot or that there’s too much sun, finding clothes to get dressed and go to a wedding, thinking you have to be both chic and cool at the same time, remembering the time she gave everything to be chic and still looked out of line, doing her hair and going to the hairdresser.
The technician – likes to drink coffee in the sun, walk around, tinker on a computer, generally tinker, have a drink, do blue Chimay, juggle, be a clown, the county, talk for hours to change the world without the world noticing, learn about nature, Herman Hesse, do debates for the sake of debate, being a godfather and knitting slippers, playing chess with a good friend, going to a bar, his little habits, french fries, scouts, looking at the horizon, taking a port on a boat, sailing, being stuck on 10m2 with his best friends in the middle of the water, his orange tree, doing magic in front of his mirror, imagining algorithms, thinking of a free internet, procrastinating.
The technician – doesn’t like: having to propose a list of what he likes and doesn’t like.
