Cristal pop, le bal poétique et populaire

(Cristal Pop, The Public and Poetic Dance)


creation 2017

Directed by Olivier Couder

Le Théâtre du Cristal could not pass up the opportunity to get involved in this local, recreational movement, with an added dimension of social diversity. The singers here have a disability that can be heard in their voice.


Cristal Pop is the continuation of a particularly faithful and fertile artistic collaboration between Pierre-Jules Billon and Olivier Couder. Indeed, this is the fourth show they have worked on together. After the very memorable Dernier Cri, then Lointain Intérieur on Henri Michaux’s plays, and the recent Cabarat des frissons garantis, these partners in crime are back again, ready to get the crowd moving. This show builds on the experience of the Pop that has livened up countless balls for several years, as a duo (accordion, drums) or a quintet with the Grand Pop (drums, accordion, double bass, guitar, and voice). This know-how and solid musical base is complemented by Cristal’s zaniness — its distance and strangeness, that suit festive occasions so well.
