The Théâtre Dunois invites young and old alike in front of the Théâtre du Parc Floral (in the Parc Floral de Paris) to discover 7 artistic proposals in the open air : concerts, sound and poetry strolls, landscape installations and performances on the summer program!
THE "SUMMER AT THE FLORAL PARK THEATER" PROGRAM.
- August 29th and 30th at 2 and 3 pm : Contes bleus / Ensemble ALMAVIVA (Cie Cela Dit)
A "blue tale" is a wonderful story with a happy ending. Giving room for children's participation, these stories are presented in the form of a kamishibaï ("paper play" in Japanese), a travelling wooden theatre where illustrations are scrolled through. The guitar underlines the stories told.
- September 4 at 5 pm and September 5 at 3 pm : La Ballade des Semeurs (Cie du Porte-Voix)
Three artists visit the figure of the sower and take the audience on an "artistic walk" through the natural spaces, punctuating the landscapes with musical and choreographic impromptus. Resonating with the spaces they cross, they play with space and time, suspending, stretching, compressing... The public from a very young age is brought to take part in this sensitive and artistic encounter.
- September 5 at 2 and 7 pm and September 6 at 10 and 12 am
A garden for tomorrow: the collective "i am a bird now" produces a sound piece based on the children's book written by Gilles Clément and Vincent Gravé: Un jardin pour demain. (Ed Cambourakis). "Alongside the character of the gardener, we cross times and continents, to discover the origin of vegetables, their cultivation, their seasonality and the art of accommodating them."
- September 5 at 6 pm and September 6 at 11 am. : Who grows (Lunatic Co.)
This show for young audiences at the crossroads of circus, object theatre and plastic arts, immerses young and old alike in a moving visual material, in constant transformation, in the hollow of a tangle of bamboos and cotton threads. Echoing each other, body and structure mutate, blossom from white to colour, while voices progress towards language, from inarticulate shouting to harmonious singing in an imaginary language.
- September 12 at 2 pm and September 13 at 11 am and 2 pm
Le Jardin (Ensemble ALMAVIVA / Cie Cela Dit) | For the past few days Annick, the caretaker of the botanical garden, has not been well. How can we make her smile again? Bonzo the squirrel, Kiko the hedgehog, Venus the ladybird, Lola the frog... and Vincent the writer get together to find a solution. As the seasons go by, the story tackles the themes of difference and handicap. Two musicians create a world of sound where the rustle and cries of animals become musical material to enter into a dialogue with the text, OrphéeForme hors les murs of Jean-Pierre Siméon's "La mort n'est que la mort si l'amour lui survives".
- September 12 and 13 at 6 pm (Cie Rêve Mobile)
Three actors will meet the spectators in order to convey the highlights of Orphée's existence. Each episode will plunge the spectator into a very different universe, interspersed with song and dance. From the birth of his vocation as a poet, to the wonders he accomplishes, through his amorous encounter with Eurydice, his attempt to go looking for her in the underworld, then his own death, Orpheus' destiny fascinates and amazes us and questions us about the notion of courage.
