You may have caught sight of these 150 people last summer, proudly displaying their yellow T-shirts in the city's green spaces, shouting, singing, jumping, playing about...No, they are not unhinged!. Together they form a choir that performs a unique and lavish show under the approving eye of the Italian director Marco Martinelli. In the wake of New York, Avignon and Chicago, this giant of the theatre gets this unusual group to bring to life the story of Rumore di Acque (Noises of the waters), complemented with the fantastic music of the Fratelli Mancusco from Sicily. Somewhere on a Mediterranean island, a general has been sent by the Ministry of the Inferno to make a census of the huge number of people left stranded on the edges of beaches. A music and theatrical tribute to all those emigrating out of desperation. Spectators are then invited to leave these "turbulent waters" to follow the choir as it makes its way to the Belfry Garden for The Heresy of Happiness, where Mayakovsky’s luminous poems will ring out.
