The astonishing stage truck founded by the virtuoso pianist Guilhem FABRE, inaugurates the event in the company of actor François MICHONNEAU in a dialogue between Rachmaninov, Baudelaire, Bach and Rostand…
A virtuoso lyricist, trained at the Paris Conservatory and then at the Gnessin Institute in Moscow, Guilhem Fabre is the designer of the uNopia stage truck which is now invited to festivals throughout France. François Michonneau is one of the favourite actors of Olivier Py, director of the Avignon Festival, with whom Guilhem played in « Les Parisiens » and « Pur présent ».
uNopia offers you a meeting between notes and words, a piano recital where classical music and French poetry meet, mingle and answer each other. A dialogue between Rachmaninov, Baudelaire, Bach and Rostand… A moment of sharing after isolation like a ray of sunshine after rain, in all simplicity.
