Pays de la Loire: theatrical roaming and village encounters

Camille de la Guillonnière directs the Regional Theater of Pays de la Loire. He was for a very long time the playwright for Jean Bellorini, who now directs the TNP de Villeurbanne. ” I come from a really small village north of Angers, he tells us. At some point my great-aunt informed me that the baker, Mom Panchêvre, had performed there Maria Stuart, Schiller, in 1945. Because the nation folks don’t appear to me any extra silly at this time than they did then, I informed myself that it was completely needed to supply them once more top quality theatrical texts: the good comedian, poetic, philosophical authors and literary. That is why I created The stroll by means of the villages, 17 years ago.

My mentors are Jeanne Laurent and Jean Dasté, the pioneers of theatrical decentralization! To which is added Maurice Pottecher, the creator of the Widespread Theater of Bussang. As a result of if you wish to go all the best way to the tip of the viewers assembly, you additionally should share the stage with them.

Very lovely human adventures and a coaching problem, which we additionally took on, in the course of the 12 months, with programs given by the corporate’s actors.

As Stroll by means of the villages, not solely are we enjoying in small cities, however yearly we come again! We began 17 years ago with three villages. As we speak we now have thirty-nine to go to. We discovered regulars and new audiences there. We arrived with our stage, sound, lights, bar, bookstore. The municipality offers benches, chairs, electrical energy, a room to vary. We search for probably the most appropriate place for the present, within the coronary heart of on a regular basis life: the market sq., the city corridor, the college, the church… The actors obtain them an hour earlier than the present. They hand out blankets, run the bar, and after the present, the night time continues at this touring bar and bookstore, the place folks speak concerning the present and all, like previous mates. »

Of all of the museum’s summer season workshops, this one is geared toward youngsters from the age of 5. In addition to the dad and mom or grandparents who accompany them! We’re within the Nationwide Archaeological Museum, within the fort (nationwide area) of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, with one of many richest collections ever assembled on the topic. Artist Clara Baum has chosen, with archaeologist Laurent Olivier, to supply youngsters an enigmatic Gallic object.

We appeared on the museum collectively and talked about it, she continues. It’s alleged to be a suspension. Was it a sacred object? A standard object? In truth, we do not know. Then again, we see how a lot the Gauls liked to adorn objects of various residing species: animals, crops. Human varieties too. It might appear to be a dragon, a chimera…

The concept of ​​appropriating this combination of figures comes fairly naturally. So I recommend that the kids make a “pell-mell” e-book. They’ll be capable to give wings to their creativeness, however inside a framework that reassures them: the rule of the sport is to attract any animal, incredible or not, in three components, and calculating the intervals at all times in the identical locations, for instance the transition from the neck to the remainder of the physique. Generally it overflows a bit (and it does not matter)! Then we minimize it out, I make a binding and everybody has their little e-book. They’ve enjoyable mixing up the pages, displaying them to one another.

We see their sources of inspiration emerge, how they symbolize residing species, what they arrive throughout after they draw, what worries them. Generally a Spider-Man seems, who can be a mix: a spider-man, a supply of infinite dialogue… »

Middle-Val de Loire area: a contemplative circus on the banks of the Loire


“Towards a present, it’s a sensorial spectacle whose fundamental interpreter, not less than for half of it, is… the panorama. On the finish, says Emilia Tau, juggler, dancer, puppeteer, creator and director, we return, with the viewers, to the river and everybody contemplates it in silence for a minute.
