Pakistan is an extremely craggy country. Up in the north, close to the Chinese borders, some of the highest Himalaya summits tower in the sky. Down to the south: Baluchistan; huge, often desert, overlapping with Iran. Although the landscapes remained intact, history shaped the lives of their inhabitants. In the north, in Hunza’s valley, it’s the opposite: seven years ago, landscapes have been severely overturned by a landslide that lead to some gigantic floods. Hundreds of victims, thousands of displaced people. Many of them weren’t able to go back to their villages now laying under the blue-green 22 kilometers lake. But so far, nothing has been able to destroy the tremendous culture of this country, its music and its poets. Théâtre de la Ville, faithful to its will to borrow different roads, will allow to listen to new north and south voices, accompanied by some as much melodious as magical musical instruments such as the plaintive suroz - a bowed string instrument with a long neck - or the feverish double pipe.

Jean-Pierre Thibaudat
