Directed by: Stéphane DruetChoreography: Sebastián GaleotaAudret Emmanuelle Goizé and Gilles Bugeaud, singing, Laurent Delaveau, bass, Gilles Parodi, guitarduration 1 hourA gypsy jazz trio and two opera singers. Together, they revisit the surprising repertoire of the Roaring Twenties, made songs, magazines, excerpts from musicals and operettas. original meeting but not inappropriate because the swing was born in the interwar period and it is the 30s that saw the peak of Django Reinhardt and the invention of the gypsy style. Around figures of Mistinguett, Maurice Chevalier, Josephine Baker, Stephane Grappelli, this unusual quintet offers a reading of the swing that dynamited the Parisian scenes.All songs are real stories whose texts continue to amaze us with their humor, but mostly by a straightforward style, without censorship, free, sometimes licentious, but always fair, never banal, never rude.
