Les Bonimenteurs

Description

In the early days of cinema, when the picture was still silent, the film lecturer (bonimenteur in French) was the person responsible for narrating the film live - often accompanied by music. A role of picture storyteller tailer-made for actor-director Jonathan Capdevielle.
For this creation in collaboration with Arthur B. Gillette and Jennifer Eliz Hutt - two musicians who also get into acting here -, the three performers cut the sound of one of the cult films of Italian cinema, Suspiria by Dario Argento, and reinvent the dialogues, sound effects and the soundtrack on stage. Based on improvisations, instrumental and vocal spirals (alternately summoning Madonna or Joy Division), do it yourself sound effects, the performers sometimes fall into an uncontrolled trance, carried away by the whirlwind of this modern tale of witches which was filmed in 1977.
