Synopsis

I am I don't know who,

I die I don't know when,

I am surprised that I am so happy.

Epitaph of Martinus von Biberach, 15th century German clergyman

Exploring the body and soul as they are swept up in the storms of passion and observing their wildly conflicting expressions-this is the ambition of Baùbo, a fascinating and irreverent musical theater performance in which music and action merge as if in a dream.

Jeanne Candel, after the success of Demi-Véronique and Le Crocodile trompeur / Didon et Énée, returns to Festival dei Due Mondi with a new creation inspired by the myth of Baùbo: Demeter, goddess of fertility and harvest, in the grip to a sad state of bewilderment after the abduction of her daughter Persephone from by Hades causes the dramatic drying up of arable land. The old priestess Baúbo restores her smile by lifting her robes and showing her sex: the goddess bursts into liberating laughter and agrees to feed again. The rest of the myth will generate the cycle of the seasons.

Jeanne Candel and musical director Pierre-Antoine Badaroux compose an anatomy of passion in which music and theater once again intertwine.

"We will open the body and soul that have been captured by the tumult of passion," Candel says. "Editing through the logic of the dream will be our working method. The dream and its singular language contain writing powers that I wish to put to the test. I would like to reveal the inner life of the tumult of passion, to show life from the inarticulate, the mystery of this energy that can drag away any existence."

As already savored to Spoleto, on stage the joyous group of actors and accompanying musicians travel the dizzying path of this liberating transgression to eviscerate with appetite and insolence what makes us feel most intensely alive.

Biographies

Jeanne Candel

d'Art Dramatique (CNSAD) where he works with Andrzej Seweryn, Joël Jouanneau, Muriel Mayette, Philippe Adrien, Mario Gonzalès and Arpàd Schilling. From 2006 to 2011 he worked regularly with Arpàd Schilling with whom he produced four shows. In 2009 he founded la vie brève and performed with the company: Robert Plankett (Artdanthé, 2010); Le Crocodile trompeur / Didon et Enée, co-produced with Samuel Achache, adapted from Purcell'sopera and from other materials (Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, 2013); Le Goût du faux et autres chansons (Festival d'Automne, 2014), Orpheus, co-produced with Samuel Achache, adapted from Monteverdi (Comédie de Valence, January 2017); Demi-Véronique, a theatrical ballet inspired by Gustav Mahler's Fifth Symphony co-created and performed with Caroline Darchen and Lionel Dray (Comédie de Valence, February 2017); Tarquin, an opera drama composed from Florent Hubert to a libretto by Aram Kebabijan (Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil - CDN, September 2019). In February 2016 she is invited to stage Hans Krasa's Brùndibar at the Opéra de Lyon. In the midst of a health crisis, she stages Jean-Philippe Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie, conducted from Raphaël Pichon with Ensemble Pygmalion (Opéra Comique, November 2020) and Benjamin Britten's The Rape of Lucretia, conducted from Léo Warynski (Opéra de Paris / Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, May 2021). In April 2022 she was engaged in La Nuit sera blanche, based on from A Gentle Creature by Fyodor Dostoyevsky directed by Lionel González (Théâtre Gérard Philipe, Saint-Denis). He has a passion for in situ creations, in which the driving force of creation is based on the extraction of tales, unconscious stories from pre-existing places. Creations in situ: Nous brûlons, une histoire cubiste, a touring performance in the recesses of the village of Villeréal (July 2010); Some kind of minster, a creation on a from tennis court (Villeréal 2012); Dieu et sa maman, a performance in a deconsecrated church in Valence, filled with canoes, created and performed with Lionel Dray (Ambivalences festival, May 2015); TRAP, a performance in the lower floor of the Comédie de Valence theater and in the city's departmental archives (May 2017). from July 2019 runs together to Marion Bois and Elaine Meric the Théâtre de l'Aquarium, in the Cartoucherie in Paris, making it a house of creation dedicated to the interweaving of music and theater.

Pierre-Antoine Badaroux

Onstage he is a saxophonist. Offstage he composes, arranges, researches, reconstructs and deconstructs his own and others' music. As a member of the Umlaut collective he is involved in the production, live or recorded, of various music: jazz, improvisation or contemporary composition and experimental music. As artistic director of the Umlaut Big Band, he deepens, through practice, a reflection on the history of jazz, its reinterpretation and the world of arrangers. He teaches jazz at the Montreuil Conservatory. He is currently a member of the Peeping Tom quartet (Axel Dörner, Joel Grip and Antonin Gerbal), Jupiter Terminus (Jean-Luc Guionnet and Antonin Gerbal), and Protocluster (Bertrand Denzler, Benjamin Dousteyssier and Antin Gerbal). He co-directed with Sébastien Beliah the Hodos Ensemble. He has collaborated with composers Philip Corner, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Bertrand Denzler, Peter Ablinger and Hannes Lingens. He has created works with ONCEIM by Eliane Radigye, Peter Ablinger or John Tilbury. Since 2015, he has been co-organizer of Jazz Series, a series of concerts drawing on the often forgotten jazz repertoire. To date, Pierre-Antoine Badaroux has more than twenty recordings to his credit.

la vie brève

Founded from Jeanne Candel in 2009 to Paris, la vie brève is an ensemble in which actors, musicians, theater directors, set designers, costume designers, and technicians come together regularly for periods of research and creation. From its initial members, la vie brève has never stopped developing, transforming itself, reformulating itself according to the needs of the shows it proposes. It is the collective writing to that shapes the company's creations. The result is a polyphonic writing in which actors and/or the musicians and singers are placed at the center and are considered as creators and authors, not mere performers. la vie brève is particularly interested in the relationship between music and theater. The company stages music: live (most performers are musicians from from a jazz or classical background) or recorded, music is present in all performances. The main question we ask ourselves during rehearsals is: how do music and theater "weave the action" together at the same time; how do theater and music play together, play against each other, oppose each other, merge, and open a depth of field? This leads us to to experiment with various research processes and free forms from any dogma because they are rooted in the experience of the stage. The creations are made of various materials that make the boundaries of a performance flexible: pictorial, cinematic, scientific or philosophical materials, and the references are so many actorly bases that we invoke during improvisation or stage writing. from July 2019, la vie brève runs the Théâtre de l'Aquarium, which has become a house of creation for theater and music. "Twirling people around every corner" is the leitmotif. Associated artists, actors-musicians-singers, companies-in-residence work to make this instrument of resonance vibrate. Twice a year, in winter and spring, the company organizes the BRUIT - Festivals théâtre et musique.
