CANDIDE (OU L'OPTIMISME)

Cultural, Entertainment/recreation, Show in Mougins
  • It is a pleasure to introduce you the new programming.
    Dance and puppet theatre will obviously be very present, but also theatre, music, circus and humour.

    Candide is a virgin being who discovers the world. An ultra-sensitive character, sometimes revolted. A young man struggling with the violence of society, and who, faced with disillusionment, never gives in to despair or cynicism. The story is an uninterrupted chain of horrors more abominable than each other. In this general darkness, three scenes of voluptuousness emerge from a decor with tangy colors voluntarily caricatural, as so many visions of happiness...

    Candide is a virgin being who discovers the world. An ultra-sensitive character, sometimes revolted. A young man struggling with the violence of society, and who, faced with disillusionment, never gives in to despair or cynicism. The story is an uninterrupted chain of horrors more abominable than each other. In this general darkness, three scenes of voluptuousness emerge from a decor with tangy colors voluntarily caricatural, as so many visions of happiness according to Candide. Seven actors metamorphose (fancy costumes, transformations) to interpret a gallery of characters and roles of passage. The scenic device is modulated over the journeys. The short scenes are linked to the rhythm of an exhilarating mad race. The dialogues and tirades written by Voltaire are preserved. We find there his biting humour, his brilliance for irony and for the absurd, his impertinence, his intellectual requirement. This Candide is a hilarious comedy.

    Artistic Director’s Opinion
    Back to basics for Julien Duval, a former ERAC student who now has a remarkable career as a director. This adaptation offers a quirky and entertaining light on this text whose comic potential is no longer to be proven. A renewed look and… pretty pink!
