CRESCENDOS IN BLUE
A site specific adaptation of L'Ecume des Jours by Boris Vian

Crescendos in Blue is more than just a love story. It is the creation of a whole world where fish swim down water pipes, sunlight is diffused into droplets, mice speak and rooms expand and contract depending on the mood. A world that twists and turns around the sensual rhythms of Jazz. A world that distorts itself with the laughter, the fears and the growing desperation of the characters.

This unique production sees the revival of a French classic for an unsuspecting anglophone audience. It is not just a literal translation - it is a 'mise en espace' where the art deco library will be filled with the languishing sound of jazz to follow the actions and emotions of Colin and Chloe's tragic love story. The poetic energy of the original text will seep through the colours, sounds and movements to immerse the audience into Vian's enchanted vision of Post-War Paris.

PIPPRODUCTIONS is collaborating with l’Institut Français du Royaume-Uni and Les Alcolytes, an up and coming Jazz band from Paris, to find an alternative language to portray this fantastical world. The event will coincide with The Week of the French Language and to celebrate Boris Vian as a unique author, Dr Carole Bourne-Taylor (Oxford University) will introduce Crescendos in Blue on 20th March 2007.

DATES:
Friday 16th March
Saturday 17th March
Tuesday 20th March
Wednesday 21st March

TIME: 7.30pm / TICKET PRICES: £5/£3 / VENUE: L’Institut Français du Royaume-Uni,
17 Queensberry Place, London SW7 2DT / Reservations: 020 7073 1350
