Warm sounds, pizzicati like on a guitare, vocal and instrumental percussions are just some of the ingredients of “one woman show” by Elizabeth Boudjema.
This exploratory journey offers us an unusual approach to the violin, based on Théodore violin tuned to the lower octave, in agreement with Gustave, tuned in the classical manner.
A strange synopsis … musical !
There is no doubt that Théodore and Gustave are in cahoots and are trying to stand up to the “loop station” called “Loupiote” which, however, refuses to stand in a corner and want to be everyone’s boss! Both are forced to follow… because it is she who holds the tempo!
Our three accomplices are in harmony with each other and agree to wrap us, throughout the concert, notes of jazz, classical music and world music, through rich and rhythmic accompaniments of original compositions.
As for the voice, passing by chance, she decides not to stay on the sidelines and to offer her services to this happy trio. After a small meeting, the three protagonists decide to attempt the adventure … Thus, the voice will be able to give body and soul to its passion!As the concert progresses, she’s getting caught up in the game and becomes more daring but always showing reserve…
All things considered, this performance is a set of colours, rhythms and bow strokes in search of a time never lost… A performance as much to see as to listen!
The performance proposed by Elizabeth Boudjema can be presented in all kinds of places: cultural centres, festivals, schools, private concerts, etc…
…the duration of the show is about 50 min.
