Every year, the “Talents Adami Théâtre” scheme enables an artist to invite ten young actors into his or her artistic world. The 2020 cohort worked with Fanny de Chaillé, a director who uses language as a testing ground, composing a “chorus” between two lockdown periods for a production in the form of a collective and polyphonic experiment.
The poem “Et la rue” by Pierre Alferi (from his collection Divers chaos, published by P.O.L.), served as the starting point – and musical score – for this collective piece entitled Le Chœur. Its development was hampered by the constraints caused by the pandemic, but also shaped in response to the latter, through a search for new modes of contact with the public. Thus, a journal and a radio podcast were added to and drove the production process, opening up new outlets for the young artists’ creativity in this time of crisis. In this same spirt of questioning the links between speech and theatrical form, they are now taking this project to the stage.
