Sinopsi

Carrying on from last season's 'Aria di PRIMAVERA' cycle, a hugely successful series of shows in Italian, this season, we are looking to France for the second edition of the festival, this time under the name: 'Air de PRINTEMPS'.

One outstanding piece in the new edition of the festival is 'RÉPARER LES VIVANTS', by the CDN de Normandie-Rouen. The show won the 2017 Molière Prize and directed and adapted by Emmanuel Noblet from the book by Maylis de Kerangal. The festival will also host two shows directed by Emilià Carilla: 'EL DESIG DE CAPBUSSAR-SE', based on 'Butes' by Pascal Quignard, and 'ALLONS FRANÇOIS DE LA PATRIE', a musical.

During this period, there will also be free events. Muriel Mayette will kick off the festival with a reading of short stories by Guy de Maupassant; and Boris Rotenstein presents 'Las cartas de amor' by Henri Barbusse.

EL DESIG DE CAPBUSSAR-SE
Souvenez-vous, un jour, jadis, on a perdu ce qu’on aimait.
Souvenez-vous qu’un jour vous avez tout perdu de tout ce qui était aimé.
Souvenez-vous qu’il est infiniment triste de perdre ce qu’on aime.
On raconte que bien avant l’Antiquité, jadis, un homme abandonna subitement, imprévisiblement, involontairement, tous ses compagnons.
Il courut et sauta tout à coup du pont d’une vieille toison dorée.
Il nagea
Il nagea
(Un passage de Butes, écrit par Pascal Quignard)

ALLONS FRANÇOIS DE LA PATRIE
Under the umbrella of a delightful concert around the chanson française, a pianist, a singer, a stage director and his assistant reflect and show some irony about the details which revolve around the construction of a show, even theirs. Which show can be more fascinating than attending the performance (or the riot) of their souls while in the process of creation?

Music repetoire: La complainte de la butte, Un petit poisson, Un petit oiseau; La mer; Dis, quand reviendras-tu?; Mexico, La valse des Si, La grande zoa, Jolie môme, La chansonnette, among others.

RÉPARER LES VIVANTS (Molière Award 2017)
Réparer les vivants tells us how the heart of a 19-year-old boy ends up in the body of a 50-year-old woman within 24 hours. The show captures and describes all the human chain which is derived out from it to reach such an achievement. This is much more than a monologue.
