Semaine de la Francophonie

Albert Camus lit L’Etranger / REMIX

Thursday 20 March 2014 20:30-22:30

Friday 21 March 2014 20:30-22:30

A stroll under the devastating Algerian sun in the company of Albert Camus.

An interdisciplinary visual and oral experience based on L’Etranger read by Albert Camus himself (from a 1954 recording) and mixed live with contemporary electronic music by Belgian DJ Pierre de Mûelenaere. Original images mixed live by the video artists Orchid Bites are simultaneously superimposed over the recitation.

Two major nightlife disciplines combine to create a contemporary interpretation of this classic and beloved piece of literature.

Originally created in 2008 with appearances in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Turkey, Canada, and Morocco, HELICE productions has launched a new tour in celebration of the 100th year of the birth of Camus in 2013.

Since 2008, HELICE Productions has been dedicated to producing multidisciplinary performances and shows. They are particularly intent on creating a space for literature to overlap with and inspire other disciplines, and especially those within electronic culture. Literature, electronic music and electroacousitcs, digital art, VJing, mapping, sculpture, photography and other merge into hybrid forms of true creation rather than simple adaptations.

Performance based on L’Etranger by Albert Camus (Gallimard).
