Jonathan Capdevielle

Rémi

Jonathan Capdevielle adapts Hector Malot’s Sans Famille, a stirring classic of children’s literature, into two episodes: a show and an audio book to listen to back home.

Every aspect of Sans Famille, the famous coming-of-age novel that tells the story of Rémi, an orphan sold to Vitalis, a big-hearted troubadour, simply had to appeal to Jonathan Capdevielle: childhood, memories, our relationship with our origins, family, and the way these elements partly determine individuals are all topics that hold pride of place in the shows of this supremely talented artist whose creation Adishatz/Adieu featured in Antigel’s very first festival. Throughout his journey, Rémi discovers a colourful world inhabited with murky characters, masked and costumed, who guide him towards his destiny. Structured in two episodes, the play moves from images to a radio fiction to listen to back at home, at school or even at Théâtre Saint-Gervais.
