Le Chant de la Source

Under the marquee of the Baladins du Mirror, no show without songs!

That would be like…. a tree without birds, a party without friends, a sun without a morning, cheese without wine, a journey without an inn!

The Baladins tell you these stories full of songs, laughter and the colours of the world…And through these tales come down to us from time immemorial, having crossed seas, wars, countries, carried only by the human voice, maybe you will hear the murmur of that famous “Song of the Fountain”. This show is inspired by the world and the writings of the author and story-teller Henri Gougaud. Eleven actors recite a selection of tales drawn from the writer’s work.

Having crossed seas, continents, wars, the epidemics, revolutions and centuries, these tales have reached us by the sole power of the human voice.

Talking about the show

“With the Song of the Fountain, the wooden stage is transformed into a flying carpet and the tent becomes a sail. The spectator is transported, with just a few words or a refrain, to Bulgaria, Turkey, India or Russia. In this timeless voyage, both magical and dream-like, humour, poetry, images, dance and song are born." — Muriel Hublet
