An urbanite in le Midi
The diptych Manon and Jean van Florette tells the story of an urbanite who takes up residence in a village in le Midi. This ‘alien’ is not really welcome.
Since 1999, Waas Gramser and Kris Van Trier have adapted five works by the French writer Marcel Pagnol (1895-1974). They have staged these performances as far afield as Marseille. Anyone who comes from Marseille knows Pagnol’s work by heart – and here too, in this most Pagnol-minded part of France, audiences were captivated.
Comp. Marius performs with a minimal set and a maximum of imagination, in the open air and by daylight. Thus surrendering to the unpredictability of the weather gods. You too surely?
