Retouchez pas Molière! (en français) + Footsbarn Travelling Theatre Workshop (in English)

19th February 2018 a show performed by Footsbarn Travelling Theatre.

Footsbarn Theatre - Retouchez pas Molière! (en français)

9 am 19th February Main Hall

Ce spectacle fait parti du festival FOOTSBARN EN TCHEQUIE.

Le spectacle est composé de deux pièces de Molière:

Le Mariage Forcé
Cette pièce atypique de Molière, une farce en un acte, est sous forme d'odyssée dont le héros est un Sganarelle plein de doutes sur son futur mariage. Il va à l'encontre de personnages excentriques pour leur demander conseil, et n'obtient aucune réponse claire. L'absurdité des philosophes, le mystère des gitans et la violence de la famille de sa fiancée ne font que le plonger dans une confusion totale. 

La Jalousie du Barbouillé s'y ajoute en épilogue, le mariage s'est consumé et aigri, la discorde règne.

Les deux pièces se confondent en un mouvement, nous montrant avec l´ironie et l´ humour que, décidément, les problèmes de couples sont eternels.

FOOTSBARN TRAVELLING THEATRE (FRANCE)

 

Footsbarn Travelling Theatre is one of the world’s leading touring companies performing for the most part in one of its circus big tops but also in theatres thoughout the world. Renowned for its exciting adaptations of classics such as Shakespeare & Moliere transcending the barrier of language with its unique blend of visual theatre, music and magic. 

In thirty five years, Footsbarn has produced nearly 60 plays and travelled to the six Continents and is a truley multi-national group. The actors possess a multiplicity of talents and theatrical techniques all of which inhabit and enrich every performance. Footsbarn began life in cornwall in 1971 rehearsing in a barn owned by the Foot family, hence its name. In 1984 the company left Britain to take its brand of theatre to international audiences and remained without a base until 1991 when a farm was purchased in central France, La Chaussée. Today its base is both a fully equipped production centre complete with workshops, rehearsal space, office and studios but also a centre for education. Over the last 15 years Footsbarn has organised and staged numerous workshops, which have been taught by both actors from the company as well as proffessionals associated with Footsbarn.

„Footsbarn is a theatre festival unto itself, a wonderfully eclectic mixture of styles and influences, of nationalities and cultures, all melded into a seamlessly fluid torrent of pure theatre....“ Irish Times, Fintan O'Toole

„Footsbarn's arrival in any town is an event in itself as they create a colourful circus atmosphere and buzz everywhere they go.“ Graeme Farrow, Artistic Director, Wales Millennium Centre

„Footsbarn’s influence can be detected in a subsequent generation of companies. Without Footsbarn, we may never have had Complicite, Kneehigh and Told by an Idiot: companies which reach out across the footlights and embrace the audience, recognising that circus and clowning are not dirty words.“ The Guardian, Lyn Gardner

„What these poeple have is a kind of essence, a distillation of theatre that they can reproduce to stunning effect. There is a kind of magic to it all that is enhanced by the vagabond gypsy mystique of the travelling theatre.“ The Australian
