Clowns play in Grenoble oncologic care service

Every single week, professional clowns visit with young patients in Grenoble pediatric hospital, triggering a laugh here, there a frantic game with a 4 years old child, or an emotional moment shared with a mother who has not slept all night long and finally sees her toddler laugh again ... In the children oncologic care service everyone knows very well that the clowns would arrive on Tuesday and Thursday: clown’s costumes distribute their colors in waiting rooms and in the hallways, then in pediatric services rooms. The atmosphere changes, becomes lighter, an air of fantasy circulates, nurses sketch a dance, service agents are racing with their carts, the department manager stops for a moment to listen to the joke of the day.  ..

Theo, 4, loves to partner with one of the clowns to make the other one his whipping boy: the clowns are jumping in this transposed game that allows Theo to express the violence of hospitalization and invasive care.

Melanie, 13, does want to see anybody, especially not the clowns ... Clowns welcome its rejection by disapproving each other for having dared to open her room door.

 "I told you we should not enter"

"But it is you who hit"

 "But it is you who opened!"

 "I just wanted to do a magic trick!"

 "Excuse me miss, I frankly cannot stand this guy, it's like this since this morning, he is doing silliness after silliness, I do not know what to do with him."

Melanie, witness of the bickering clowns, smiles and finally says, "Then, what about this magic trick?" The clowns are leaving Melanie bed room while bickering but under the applause…
