Tonight at 7:00 pm

La Charité, Carpentras
In celebration of International Women's Day a show will take place tonight in the ancient vaulted cellars of La Charité cultural centre in Carpentras. Its opening feature will be a beautiful performance by Marie-Anne Kergoët who dances on a wire as she recites a long excerpt from Molly Bloom's soliloquy from the final chapter of James Joyce's novel Ulysses. The performance, with talented musician Vincent Bauza on the bass, is a novel combination of circus, dance, music and drama. I was lucky to be invited to take photos at a rehearsal last Saturday, I will be there again tonight. If you have a chance to attend, please join us in Carpentras at 7:00 pm tonight. The show will continue with story telling (Kala Neza), Indian dancing (Laurence Fallot), danced Oriental stories (Yasmine Benseba) and women's testimonies by Hélène Ayme - full details here.
Pour fêter la journée internationale de la femme un spectacle sera donné ce soir dans les caves voutées du centre culturel de la Charité à Carpentras. Il s'ouvrira à 19h avec "Toi c'est la joie..." une très belle performance de Marie-Anne Kergoët qui danse sur un fil en disant un long passage du monologue de Molly Bloom, extrait du dernier chapitre du roman Ulysse de James Joyce. Ce spectacle accompagné par le talentueux Vincent Bauza à la contrebasse réunit en une forme nouvelle le cirque, la danse, le théatre et la musique. J'ai eu la chance d'être invitée à venir photographier une répétition le week-end dernier, c'était magnifique. Si vous êtes libres ce soir, rendez-vous à 19h à la Charité à Carpentras ; la soirée se continuera jusqu'à 23 h avec des contes (Kala Neza), des danses indiennes (Laurence Fallot), des contes dansés orientaux (Yasmine Benseba) et des récits et témoignages de femmes (Hélène Ayme) - tous les détails ici.

belle série, la lumière est superbe sur tes photos. Et puis tu as fait mieux que moi, tu n'as pas oublie le nom des artistes (mon post aujourd'hui est sur la semaine de la poesie, et j'ai oublie de noter le nom des artistes, la honte ;) ).

Légère comme une hirondelle sur un fil. Un bel avant-goût de printemps.

Bonjour! Nathalie...
Merci, for sharing the links, and information about this event on International Women's Day too!
DeeDee ;-D

Marie-Anne who used to be a circus performer has now chosen to move away from high end stiff-smile performances into a different kind of universe where she explores the cracks and failures of the human mind and body - the text she chose to interpret is testimony to that. Her performance shows that life is a fragile balancing act - literally.

Dommage que Carpentras soit si loin
Si, d'un coup d'aile...
promis: je relirais ce soir, le monologue de Molly Bloom.

How fabulous. That first photo is a dream. God for Marie-Anne in moving away from commercialism and doing what she really wants to do with her art.

Souhaitons à la diseuse de ne pas perdre... le fil.
Ni le contrebassiste ses cordes.
Et que les mots s'enfilent... sans filet !

I don't see how she can stretch out on that thin wire? It must hurt. In reply to your comment I wrote the following:

Reply to Nathalie...
I am not sure about it but don't think anything was cut out of this video I am posting. I think it was the one they showed live on television that had a few seconds cut out.

J'aime beaucoup le premier cliché, qui dégage quelque chose de très onirique .
