by Hanokh Levin

Direction: Alain Batis

With Raphaël Almosni, Jean-Yves Duparc, Emmanuelle Rozès,
Louise Chirinian (cello), Alain Karpati (clarinet), Marc-Henri Lamande (piano)

A comedy. Thirty scenes. Twelve songs. A metaphysic fresco. Awakened by life, Itamar Yaacobi decides to leave his lifelong friend David Leidental and to search happiness, ready to find it at any price. He meets Ruth Chahach, a plump lady who aspires by all her soul to music. He does everything to convince himself that he is in love. He marries her. The day of the wedding, Leindethal offers himself as a gift...

Hanokh Levin, Israeli author of the 20th century, in one of our most important contradictors. He interrogates Man in what is the most sensitive: his quest for happiness.

Free adaptation of the "Treaty about comedy and shows" by Armand de Bourbon, Prince de Conti

Directed by: Gabriel Debray
Acting: Vincent Viotti
 

In the 19th century,
Armand de Bourbon, Prince de Conti, after having been the first protector of Molière, became one of the most violent adversaries of theatre and specially of comedy.

"Gabriel Debray conceived, with Vincent Viotti, the "Insomnia of Prince de Conti" where, approaching his death, le powerful prince broods over his hatred of shows, remembering however scenes from Molière, that he cannot avoid admiring. Great feverish interpretation by Viotti. A beautiful moment which could find its place everywhere, where people wonder about theatre"

oivavoiOi Va Voi

In concert

“ TRAVELING THE FACE OF THE GLOBE “
Album released May 11, 2009


A real UFO in the musical galaxy, formed at the end of the nineteen-nineties, Oi va Voi is a London group which combines Jewish folklore with electronic music. Their name comes from an untranslatable Yiddish interjection, close to the English "Oh, dear!" .
The third album of Oi va Voi presents the group at the summit of its art. One can feel that with the strength of its experience, Oi va Voi returned to its roots, still keeping the best of what it had developed during the last years. It was natural that the group called on Kevin Bacon and Johathan Quarnby (Tiken Jah Fakoly, Finley Quaye, The Pretenders, David Bowie, Richard Hawley…), who already produced the album "Laughter Through Tears", for this new issue.
The album develops slowly, piece after piece, showing the musical fullness that the group now attained. Thus “Traveling The Face of the Globe” starts brilliantly with the melancholic but elated “Waiting” followed by "I Know What You Are" which introduces the new singer  Bridgette Amofah.
After KT Tunstall and Alice McLaughlin, Oi Va Voi found a new singer, whose mastership and the power of the voice allows the London group to evolve in various registers. This goddess of the "soul" combines the talents of Shirley Bassey or of Nina Simone with a more contemporary urban approach. 

“Traveling the Face of the Globe”  distills finally the influence of the 7 modern Londoners who succeeded to create moving and inspired songs that combine cultural legacy of the group with the sounds of today's London stage.

The "Klez Têtes"

Modern Klezmer music

"Music of festivals and encounters, the Klezmer carries memories and hopes, which require a special kind of performers.  The "Klez Têtes" update the klezmer repertoire by opening it to improvisations, to contemporary music, and to a thousand of unexpected components: sound effects, sound tracks of comics, circus and film music... The "Klez Têtes" succeed to square the circle: still respecting its roots, they move the klezmer into the circle of contemporary music with a particular brio."
