Le Tabou! (2013)
Directtor - Kath Burlinson
Composer - Gwyneth Herbert
Choreographer - Juliette Jeanclaude
Le Tabou! An invitation to a wild, extravagant 13 day party. A party made by the performers, the musicians, the dancers, the poets, the dreamers, the artists and the sss-singers. Absurdist, surreal, crazy and comic, this project has rooms and corridors and brrrrroooom cupboards for invention, improvisation and inspiration from you! Le Tabou! will bounce off the work of Boris Vian, French jazzman, novelist, pun-loving rhymester, maker of model aeroplanes and employee of the Parisian Department of Paper and Cardboard (quoi?). With music by singer/songwriter Gwyneth Herbert, direction by YMT devising specialist Kath Burlinson and movement, art and creative expression by painter and polymath Juliette Jeanclaude (oui, Française, aussi). Bienvenue à “L’Écume du Jours” - “the “Froth of the Daydream”, where words turn into ballet and waterlilies grow in people’s lungs.
