From 10am to 22h tonight is a day split between several appointments crucial for the intermit tents. With, on the horizon, the first strikes. A storm warning issued by the weather could get everyone to agree …
A Congolese countertenor, Serge Kakudji, an orchestra of thirteen musicians from Kinshasa, mirthful exuberance sharing! Hatched with composer Fabrizio Cassol and choreographer Alain Platel, the Coup Fatal merges baroque repertoire and Congolese music and traditional folk, rock and jazz.
The latest show of Alain Platel combines Baroque and Congolese music with unprecedented mastery specifically to enchant “In Avignon.”
Reviewer’s note : ★★★★★
A stage full of instruments, string curtains made from bullet casings, plastic blue seats. In one image, the show is this: the war, the struggle, the party, the cheap that has value.

This is an extraordinary meeting we made with Serge Kakudji Congolese counter-tenor behind “Coup fatal”, which merges baroque music and Congolese music. A concert “choreographed” with empathy and subtlety by Alain Platel.
