Jardin Zoologique | OLORIME Band

Monday, August 12, 11 am / Saint-Cyprien Grand Foyer

Concert Show for Young Audiences

Jardin Zoologique (Zoological Garden) is a show for children and young adults to be seen with their family (from 3 year old). It is designed around the Chantefables and Chantefleurs books by Robert Desnos on a music written by Jean Wiener.
Robert Desnos’ eloquence, sometimes verging on madness, together with his extreme sensitivity made of him a magical storyteller. The author whose wild ideas showed his great inventiveness seems to be in the best position to talk to children’s imagination – a playfulness to be also found in the musical world as the idea was to explore the sounds of "Toy Music" which offers a wide range of colours echoing Desnos’ Dadaism.
Today is Sunday and mummy takes Rose and Martin to the zoo. Strolling along the paths, the visit could have been quite ordinary except for the mysterious song drawing the children’s attention and taking them away from their mother. This strange music guides them to a small door. They open it and walking through it enter a fantastic world, full of strange animals from one side of it to the other. An extraordinary dreamlike journey to a country of illogicality…
The Olorime Band’s vocation is to create, produce and distribute multidisciplinary artistic projects. More generally, they want to develop all kinds of means of artistic expression allowing artistic projects to be better received by audiences. The name Olorime is a reference to Louise de Vilmorin, as this was her favourite stylistic device, and is also a reference to the fact that there is not just one way of looking at things.
