Cirque Phénix

The Circus Phénix of Paris presents a Cuban show with 50 acrobats, dancers & musicians who perform 12 colourful scenes, giving a hybrid identity to this creation between a musical & a genuine circus show (without animals). Rigor & technicality inspired sometimes from Russians & Chinese are sublimated by the tropical joy of life irradiating these performances.

K-RIO-K

FR | 2015 | 70’ | HD | French | By Greg Germain | Axe Sud | Broadcaster: France Televisions

This musical enthusiastically recalls the fruitful French Brazilian
cultural and artistic relations from the 1920s. Paul Claudel, French ambassador in Brazil, and Darius Milhaud, his cultural advisor, are namely celebrated in this boundary-breaking time travel.

 

BILLIE HOLIDAY

FR | 2013 | 81’ | HD | French | By Greg Germain | Axe Sud | Broadcaster: France Televisions

This musical pays a tribute to Billie Holiday with her twenty most beautiful songs. If Duke Ellington and Artie Shaw let her sing blues and love, Billy Holiday is also known for fighting against
segregation and alcohol.

ILLUMINATION(S)

FR | 2013 | 85' | HD | By François Caudal | French | Axe Sud | Broadcaster: Culturebox

A young man has surprising visions: the past and the present mix and the border between his dreams and the reality is vanishing. Illumination is a musical in which 9 young people from a poor district invite us to pass on the other side of the mirror. We follow their story in a whirlwind of singings, dances, smart, moving and funny scenes. A three generations family saga in which the anonymous heroes shine as stars at night. They vibrate, they live, they laugh, they cry. If you knew what is in their head, you would look at them differently.
Stage director: Ahmed Madani.
