Exhibition “Approach of a poet, Act II” in Musée Jean Cocteau
November 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - May 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm€5
Following the first part, entitled Démarche d’un poète (Approach of a poet, act) with reference to Jean Cocteau’s key work, the second part (Act II) completes the introduction of this approach by integrating Jean Cocteau’s passionate links with stage.
Jean Cocteau, always in avant-gardes, is looking for a modern and popular theater mixing tragedy, comedy, vaudeville and boulevard. He thus participates actively in the operation of destruction of the classical and academic heritage following the First World War, by a frenzied mixture of genres, including the noble genres (ballet, theater) and popular, including jazz, cinema, the circus and the music hall, for which he has a sincere and well-informed taste.
This new course gives way to the crazy and sparkling comedy with The Parade and The Married of the Eiffel Tower, but also tragedy, dance and multiple artistic collaborations.
