Sasha and Brouno, two friends that are also amateur poets. Their absurd rants come back for a new season where they show their balancing act with their signature language. Their exchange is caustic, mischievous, and endearing while sometimes being emotionally charged. Their banter shows us that life is simply more about the journey than the destination. Clearly inspired by Beckett, French author Roland Dubillard, or Monty Python. All Aboard for a new trip to Absurdistan…
BACKSTORY OF THE PROJECT SASHA AND BROUNO (2012-2017)
“Life doesn’t make any sense but we are going to find some anyway.” Sacha and Brouno
Jeremias Nussbaum and actors Bruno Paviot and David Talbot have a powerful connection. “Sasha and Brouno” is a web series created by Jeremias Nussbaum in 2012. Inspired by the zany world of Monty Python, this web series, which is intentionally directed in a very sparse fashion, banks on poetic comedy and realism, which puts the non-sense of our lives onto the front lines.
In 2017, the two anti-heroes return to the internet with new episodes co-written by Nussbaum and Maxime Fassiotti. The two writers recently read passages from the new series at the “Brouillage” radio festival in Paris. Production of the new episodes is imminent. The release is planned for 2018. With plenty of off-color derision, we will find our two fantasy-filled heroes tracing their tragi-comical path with just a touch of sarcasm.
