Loin du ciel(FAR FROM THE SKY)
DIRECTED BY OLIVIER COUDER
“We’re no longer dwarves, we’re little people, talk about progress! And me, guess how lucky I was, I got it, but only by a small amount. We’re dwarves from one metre forty and under. Guess how tall I am: one metre forty.”
How do you tell your life with humour, a good dose of elegance and gravity with a touch of irony? Josette tells us everything from her childhood and adolescence. Above all, she tells us how she came to become a singer. Here she is an hour before the concert, rehearsing with her pianist, her stage manager, talking about her life, her career… and singing. We can hear her beautiful voice on original compositions by Antoine Rosset. Along the way, we discover in this show essential stakes both on disability and on human existence in general.
Come and discover the great story of little Josette! A frightening, sentimental, terrible and hilarious story, full of little noises and great fury!
