After the success of The Great Gatsby last summer in Avignon and its run in the studio 104 of the Maison de la radio, we're continuing this year our artistic and friendly collaboration with Sofiane Zemani, artist and rapper. With him, we've chosen to give you the opportunity to hear Achilles, the great hero of Homer's Iliad. We chose Wajdi Mouawad to write a dramatic poem for four voices, those of Achilles (Sofiane Zemani), Priam, Hector, and Thetis. And we asked our faithful companion Issam Krimi to write the music. With Sofiane Zermani, we continue to share the desire to bring the great texts of our cultural heritage to all generations.
With Amira Casar, Adama Diop, Xavier Gallais, Jérôme Kircher, Sofiane Zermani, Thibault Kuttler (student at ERACM) and the musicians Angèle Legasa (cello), Issam Krimi (piano & laptop)
