« L’Eaudyssée d’Aquitaine » : spectacle made by the inhabitants
On Saturday the 27th of September, meeting from 5P.M at the village Eaudyssée on the banks of the Leyre in Mios for an artistic wandering « L’Eaudyssée d’Aquitaine ».
Realized with the inhabitants, under the artistic direction of the company Générik Vapeur in contact with the story-teller Yannick Jaulin, the five-year project looks like a legend with episodes.
Each one corresponds to a department of Aquitaine. It is conceived by the participants’ words in their territory of life: what makes them so proud? How do they feel today? How do they imagine it tomorrow?
The Eaudyssée is now settled in Gironde after the Dordogne, in the regional natural Park of the Landes of Gascogne, for the realization of the episode n° 2.
Since last January, the Faramine is hiding in the Val de Leyre marshes. The village Eaudyssée, universe of poetry, magic, words, rumours, is going to become lively, to ring, to clank to the Faramine leaving waters! She comes to write, with the complicity of more than 140 volunteers and professional artists, a proposition of contemporary legend of our aquatic environments, of our river Leyre, of our territory. It is said that she will be with improbable beings that she has met, invented during this long creative period in the marshes. Her leaving out of the water will mark the beginning of the story which she invites you to live as you wander among artistic, pyrotechnical and musical creations in the village Mios, before……it is said…….to fly away towards the Haute Lande!
