For this Year of the Comic, the “Machines

à Bulles” exhibition showcases innovative

forms of comics through 24 works illustrating

the new reading experiences offered by

digital technology.

The Digital allows to blur the lines between

all disciplines and to rethink the relationship between

authors and readers. These new types of narratives

and ways of reading open new literary

creation opportunities and change the relationship

to the book, the paper format and the digital

“machines”.

A grumpy little old man lives in his little house in

the woods by the river. Every day is the same

and he likes it this way until one day, a magical

creature leaps into his world and everything

changes! This beautifully designed puppetry

work performed without words to an enchanting

musical score, reveals a storybook world where

rivers sing, trees laugh, and curious dragonflies

come to visit. With its themes of friendship,

communication, play, adjusting to change, Old Man

and the River is perfect for the youngest theatregoer.

Scilabus, scientist and youtuber

T his talk for young people shows the different stages of

creating a scientific video that anyone could understand.

The emphasis is on researching the information, on the

quality of sources, and on the difference between an

opinion and a fact.

En plein dans l’oeil offers a poetic, playful and very

current reading of Goerges Méliès’ universe, interpreted

by three musicians in time with the imagery. With

various instruments and an original orchestra, they

bring a breath of fresh air to the fantasy and genius

of the father of the seventh art and special effects.

‘’These films work wonderfully if judged only by the

children’s spontaneous outbursts of laughter.’’

WORKSHOP

From 4

45 min

W ho is this Grande Dame that invites us to the game of

creation? Magician or deity, the big ELLE (SHE) creates

as she breathes. From darkness and void, she sets about

making a new world.

Then appear a number of creatures that have to learn

to live together, each one looking to find their place

in regards to their dreams… But is there a place for

everyone in Another World (Un Autre Monde)? A fable

of life that invites us to reflect on the

world of differences that surrounds us.

T he main objective of this workshop is to provoke a

mindful encounter between the children and the

creative process of an artist. Through tales of

sea voyage and islands, the children

will be able to discover some

geography, the territories, as well as the social and

environmental situations on the Îles-de-la-Madeleine

and St-Pierre-et-Miquelon. The workshop

is also an invitation to dive into the world of

creation with an engaged practicing artist, in an

atmosphere of mobilising and inspiring exchange.

Molière was contemporary!

DO YOU REALLY KNOW MOLIÈRE?

André Nerman, actor and stage director

‘’T hrough decades, we’ve seen many interpretations

of Molière’s theater so that now it is somewhat of a

relief to see a return to tradition with period costumes

on stage. But in reality, the modernization

of Molière’s theater is inevitable. This is of

course because as much as Molière’s pieces

were embedded in his given era, his artistic

genius could be observed in the universal

message in his critical observations of his

contemporaries.

I will talk to you about his life, his art, and the

remarkable ways in which his plays have been

interpreted by theater directors today. We will see

that regardless of which reading or which point of

vue is adopted, Molière’s words continue to speak

to us, bringing together a number of generations. ‘’

Mad Men with Molière

A MIX BETWEEN CLASSIC AND MODERNITY

Compagnie Caravague & André Nerman

M olière was an observer of his epoch. However much

rooted in their times, his characters carry a universal

dimension. These men caught up in their bad habits

yet also in their social positions, their ambitions, their

cowardices, their hypocrisies, their amorous

emotions… are they any different from

those that we rub shoulders with today?

Molière wanted to make honest people

laugh. Today we still laugh at ourselves and

those like us. Were these men of the great

century really much different than us? Through

staging, whilst respecting Molière’s language, we

will attempt to explore these dialogues in the context of

our time.

TALK

From 4

years old

30 min

S t uck in their daily routine, the two cashiers of a

local grocery shop dream of a better life. A life where

everything is possible; where carrots dance, soy sauce

falls in love and the sun has a taste of pineapple.

A life of freedom and synchronized swimming!

Prisoners of a routine they know all too well, these

women present their dreams, their need for acknowledgement,

their aspirations and their desire for

freedom through an epic where even daily objects

escape their daily weariness.

B orn in Kabylia in 1953, Slimane Zeghidour is a French

writer and journalist. After starting out as an illustrator

for Liberation and Pilote in 1974, he decided to

start a career as a writer and big time reporter. The

list of media for which he has worked was quite long:

Le Monde, Le Nouvel Observateur, Télérama, El

Pais... until he became editor-in-chief at TV5 Monde.

Also a well-known author (La Vie quotidienne à

La Mecque, Le Voile et la bannière...), Slimane

Zeghidour will answer your students’ questions about

being a journalist.
