The Ship of Fools

Lancino,Thierry (1954-)
Sex  Male
Duration  70:00
Comments  Starting with the musical work and stage adaptation by Lancino, based on the "Ship of Fools" by Sebastian Brant, we offer a theatrical production lasting for about 75 minutes. It consists of a series of short musical pieces of 1 to 5 minutes, each related to an aphorism of this huge work and linked between themselves by a biting and vivid text, astonishingly contemporary. Declaimed by an actor, this work presented in its poetic and musical context, takes on a new dimension with this stage version. The imagination of the audience is all the more stimulated because the form offers a "flavorful" alternation between the text and the music, joining them sometimes.
