He has the staircase wit and an encyclopaedic knowledge so he always lands on his feet. As a highly connected Pécuchet, Pierre Mifsud is a verbal hypertext artist. Systematically starting explanatory digressions without ever ending them, the speaker drifts with his audience along his stream of thoughts. A stream he sails on without compass, jumping from pillar to post, from Haribo sweets to Descartes' philosophy, from the shores of scientific rigour to those of language madness. With only one goal in mind: roaming the ever so wide territory of our knowledge. An ambition as comical as unreachable.

What if a choir practice was already a show in itself? In front of our eyes, with much energy and solemnity, four members of a non-professional choir add the finishing touches to their recital. A collection of international tracks, a mix of timeless nursery rhymes and more experimental scores. Vocal continuity, stage recommendations, communion, power play and et micro-tensions: nothing is missing from this true-to-life reconstruction. With an acute sense of observation and discrepancy artistry, the 2b company reveals all the aspects of a choir, which is in keeping with both music and social play. An X-ray without mockery, which benevolently triggers laughter. At the top of your lungs, of course.Production : 2b company supports : Ville de Lausanne, CORODIS
