David Melendy's humor is scathing, tongue-in-cheek and deliciously ironic... he navigates both in the classic universe of the clown and in an dry humor close to stand-up.
-Thierry Sartoretti, RTS

Etcetera, etc. is a clownesque theater piece performed by David Melendy written and created in collaboration with Céline Rey.

The piece follows Dr. Robert Malomen, specialist in molecular biology, who welcomes the audience to one of his esteemed lectures – hosted by himself, with some help from himself, and including  a few appearances by himself.
It is a path of intricate and detailed slices of a life delicately woven together, using absurd and disconcerting humour, somewhere between clown, tragicomedy, and stand up. It is a comic yet philosophical investigation into our relationship to the exponential advances of science – the tendency to push the limits of mortality, as well as the loneliness that can be caused by the widespread use of new technologies.
