Virtual Seuls en Scène 2020: Rémi

September 18, 2020 · 5:00 pm · Online

Lewis Center for the Arts; Department of French and Italian; L’Avant-Scène

In his first production aimed at audiences young and old, Jonathan Capdevielle tackles Hector Malot’s Sans famille, a vibrant classic of French literature. Based on this rite of passage novel, the show recounts the uplifting events in the life of Rémi, an orphan sold to a warm-hearted artist. Little by little, the sound in this immersive adaptation makes the act of listening an increasingly important element of the production, paving the way for the shift from image to audio fiction.

This event is family-friendly and suitable for all ages. The recording of the live event is presented in French with English subtitles. The virtual event is free and open to the public.

The video recording will be posted on September 18 at 5 PM (EDT) and will be available through Sunday, September 20.
