About Froth of the daydream

Colin is in love with Chloe, in a world he imagines, and his emotions are so strong that they jostle the laws of physics.

Two exceptional performances of Boris Vian's famous jazz novel, organized as a preview for his birth's century in 2020. This show is a contemporary and innovative interpretation of one of a jewel of our french literature.
