’FRANCE3 (French TV channel)
Telling a life story means travelling through time in all possible directions; it means telling with words, as well as with images, mime or music.
The scenography of the show ‘’J’ai Léonce à te dire’’ (“I have Leonce to tell you’’) uses, among other things, video projection. The objective is not to dazzle the audience with too many technical effects but to take the audience to a poetic bubble, to make it travel from one emotion to another.
Owing to projected photography, the audience is sitting in the reality of a place, sometimes at Leonce and Arlette’s, sometimes outside, in the nature…
A moment later, the white space of the screen becomes a poetic universe: cardboard models, figures, houses are suddenly projected onto the screen with a giant shadow; or actors, behind this veil, tell a story using the mere outline of their gesture.
There is also music: minor art, major art… definitively a popular art!
Some art dreamt by Leonce, whose head is a jumble of words, making an intoxicating symphony.
All along the show, a colored stuff is being woven, made of imagination and truth. It surrounds the audience and tells it a story with each of its fibers: ‘’J’ai Léonce à te dire’’ (“I have Leonce to tell you”), quite simply.
