La Comédie-Française has just launched its first online channel, “La Comédie continue”. On the Maison de Molière site, you can see several curtain raisers every day from 4 p.m., but also educational, literary and poetic pastilles. One way to keep in touch with the housebound audience.
“ Hello everyone. It’s off for this new day of “The Comedy continues”. I am delighted to spend this day with you. I’m Elsa Lepoivre, member of the Comédie-Française… “
Every day an actress from the “French” presents the program of the web-tv of the Comédie-Française. One way to find the public during this period of confinement.
“Staying in touch” with the public
“ A single actor can do nothing, explains Éric Ruf, administrator of the Maison de Molière. An instrumentalist perhaps if he has his clarinet, his scales; a dancer can exercise. An actor all alone… It is a collective art, so the idea of this continuous TV, of this “Comedy continues” really came from that, to keep the link with our audience, with all our partners, with educational actions , and at the same time, make sure that inside, we can cling to a common work. “
From 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. alternate educational and poetic pastilles to end the evening with a recording of a piece from the repertoire. Extract from Molière’s Misanthrope, act 1, Philinte: ” It’s madness like no other, to want to get involved in correcting the world. Like you, I observe a hundred things every day that could be better taking another course. “
This Saturday evening, don’t miss Peer Gynt by Norwegian author Henrik Ibsen, directed by Eric Ruf. And it’s Denis Podalydès who improvises as presenter of the day.
