Calenture n° 47 de l’Hypogée pour acteur, double peau et petits pots de confiture
The French playwright and theatre director settles scores with marmalade jars made by his mother in one of the clownish performances of which he holds the secret. Between body art and dramatic poem – embodied by the voice of the fine actor Marcel Bozonnet. But, are we really at the Comédie française?
Jean Lambert-Wild (FR)
Jean Lambert-wild, author, actor, scenographer, and director for actors, was born in 1972 in La Réunion. In 1990, he began writing and working on the scenic building for his Hypogée. In 1997, he became an associate artist at the Granit-Scène nationale in Belfort and founded the Cooperative 326. From 2007 to 2014, he directed the Comédie de Caen – CDN of Normandy-Rouen; since 2015 he has been directing the Théâtre de l’Union et L’Académie – Ecole Supérieure Professionnelle de Théâtre in Limousin. His “calentures” – a calenture is a violent delirium to which sailors are subject when crossing the tropical zone and is characterized by hallucinations and the irresistible desire to jump into the sea – represent the most performative aspect of his output.
