Join us on a bus trip to the Latitudes Contemporaines Festival! Our colleagues from the contemporary performing arts festival would like to welcome you in Lille.
At the boundary between the human and the puppet, the peasant and the scarecrow, the five masked characters of Farm Fatale appear and settle against a spotless white background. The audience is then led into a world highly evocative of the farm, where a group of poet scarecrows lives. They run an independent radio station, sing, play music, invent slogans and sometimes wax philosophical. Masked and speaking in distorted voices, these contemplative clowns attuned to the pulses of the planet may turn out to be somewhat familiar. In fact, these men and women striving for a better world are mostly daydreamers, poets and activists with a charming and intoxicating tendency to marvel at the beauty and diversity of nature. These are disarmingly funny and kind heroes living at plant or animal level, somehow trying to steer clear of a rampant capitalism that destroys forests, lands, and oceans, and to save the multiple lives of those teeming, speaking, poeticizing and thinking around us.
