In France, the day is rythmed by two big ritual meals (lunch and diner), but we often forget to reconsider the importance of two smaller ones : breakfast and the apéritif.
The apéritif is a ritual consequent to social life, especially in France. It’s a time of its own which conjugates social play and culinary experiences.
So here’s a relaxed moment, and beyond its appetizing function its a reenactment of the idea of sharing. It goes without saying that its ethymology (to open, in latin) draws us to the act of opening, a ritual of opening.
Apérotomanie is a malfunction provoquing the delirious conviction, not of « loving the apéro » but of « being loved by IT ». A confusion sometimes exacerbated by social networks and wearing the FFP3 mask. This portmanteau word was invented in 2020, from a funny contraction between the words « apéro », « érotique » : it suggests that the apéro would be the ritual of a possible opening to eroticism.
A delicate moment during which drinking, eating and talking take a particular color at dusk.

Always invested of acting on the edge of cultural habits, the Dérézo team – under the direction of Charlie Windelschmidt - gives a theatrical dimension where it’s not expected. Moments of meaningful parties, the three shows summon the spectators to re-live a very familiar little ritual : breakfast, a little walk, or the apéro.
