Dive into your wildest dreams to reinvent poetry
A new multiple characters theatre piece to tell the adventures of a provincial hero who left his native small town to conquer Paris: the highlight city, the city that's a symptom of its time, a city where everything's fast, for the best and for the worst. In his peculiar blazing style, Olivier Py offers a hymn to youth by proposing a surprising beam of light out of the darkness that seems to be swallowing us.
