DE LA FONTAINE À BOOBA

From 13 March 2018 To 17 March 2018
THÉÂTRE NATIONAL DE NICE
What happens when a young rapper meets a fan of the Fables of La Fontaine? A musical battle confronting literature with rap. A unanimous success at the OFF festival in Avignon!
de-la-fontaine-a-booba

Description:

Period costume and curly wig, a young fanatic of La Fontaine defends with virulence, perfect diction, the classical texts of French literature. His friend, fake teenager in tee-shirt and cap, passionately retorts that rap is an art of equal value. There follows a frantic and hilarious battle in a comedy for all ages, which revives the quarrel between the Ancients and the Moderns. And if La Fontaine was not so far from hip-hop that it is believed? Was he not the first to dislocate the alexandrine to assume free verse? Does poetry have borders? Can not a young man of today find a rhythm and pleasure in a language of yesteryear? And a classicist, appreciate the musicality of a contemporary rap? This remarkably interpreted confrontation succeeds in shaking all our a priori in a great burst of laughter.
