À Vos Saveurs” is the second part of a diptych started with “Sons… Jardins Secrets“: an “epicurean” journey inspired by two landscapes: the garden and the meal, two places of sharing par excellence, archetypes of life that cross cultures.

The action opens in a cheerful atmosphere, under the direction of a percussionist cook to begin the preparations: whipping, kneading, cutting… are all gestural and rhythmic evocations for the “ear-opening of acoustic flavours”. Instrumental playing, singing and speaking will combine to evoke “soundscapes” in this place of intense vocal activity where pots and pans clash, steam jets and bells ring… interspersed with moments of reverie.

À Vos Saveurs” is a sound and visual appetizer, an awakening of the taste buds of the memory for an evocation of the “bittersweet” of life: a convivial moment in a bi-frontal space associating spectators and performers, involved in the preparation of this banquet of sounds, images and words for the sharing of a final taste.
