Jeu Jeu la Foille's Testy Manifesto



#FindYour Funny, Weird, Escape, Story

“We all know that to be a true infiltrator into patriarchy, one must find costumes, disguises and secret doors with which to enter enemy territory, in order to dismantle it.” Susan L. Abert

Enchantress weaves words of inner resilience, recovery and revolution in a striking visual anthology. Strange, poetic and acerbically silly, Jeu Jeu la Foille’s Testy Manifesto combines linguistic acrobatics with evocative images, puppetry, and sensory experiences to delve deep into the mechanisms of intimate partner violence.

This 'difficult' second album is the follow-up to 'Jeu Jeu la Foille's Frontal Lobotomy', which dealt with experimental brain surgery, while heavily under the influence of Tom Waits. Jeu Jeu la Foille is a poet, clown, and burlesque maverick who likes beautiful melodies telling her terrible things.
