A WEEK-END IN CROATIA - A DISCOVERY OF NATIVE VARIETIES

A week-end in Croatia

COMMENTED TASTING

Saturday 2nd of December at 18h00

With Barbara Bacic, founder of Les robes de l’Est

Croatia is a tiny country and a young independent state since 1991, but is an ancient wine-growing land. Vine has been grown here since Ancient Greek times.  Between wars and phylloxera, its vineyards have lived through many trials and tribulations down through the centuries, but the tradition of wine has always been kept alive.  Today, the vineyards of Croatia, in full revival, cover a surface area just over 30,000ha. They are divided into two major areas: the coastal vineyards with Istria, the Dalmatian coast and its islands, influenced by a Mediterranean climate; and the north-east regions on the borders of Hungary, with a continental climate.  The north-eastern regions produce white wines, while the south produces both red and white. The dominant grapes varieties are Graśevina, Malvoisie and red Plavač mali, which is used to produce sweet wines.  Wine production is divided among tiny family estates, the legacy of communist Yugoslavia, which limited property ownership to 10ha.

A WEEK-END IN CROATIA - TRIO ACADEMICO BAND

A week-end in Croatia

SHOW/TASTING

Saturday 2nd of December at 19h30

The Academico Group, composed by Vedran Mikić on the violin, Tomislav Krvarić on the accordion and Ambrozije Puškarić on the guitar, has destroyed many stereotypes, so these top musicians will be able to play old-town songs or some well-known pop-hit. - Classical music is strictly separated from other forms, and we want to get closer with its play. That's why our repertoire is wide. There has been a tambourine inflation lately. We bring something else, something that reminds us archaic. So we play a string of old-fashioned songs, but we also have the opus of evergreens from classics, romance and the 20th century.

SPECIAL BOTTLING "NEW YEAR'S EVE"

In collaboration with the artists of the Combustion Spontanée collective, performance produced by the Compagnie Ô KAZOO.

SHOW AND TASTING

Sunday 31st of December at 19h00

Bordeaux’s most famous improvisation team returns to the stage of La Cité du Vin for New Year’s Eve!

Four improvisation artists, a musician and a lighting designer will be bottling ephemeral stories based on themes suggested by the audience.

As soon as they enter the theatre, the audience will be immersed in the spontaneous atmosphere of theatrical improvisation by a musician of...vacillating moods.

From the very start, everyone will realise that anything is possible, and everything is a pretext for creativity and laughter! Even if the audience chooses the themes that will be the starting point of a story, no-one can tell where, or how, or in what state it will all end.

In short, Bottling is a crazy, interactive, convivial, full-bodied and most palatable improvisation performance.

The show will be followed by a tasting of a glass of champagne.

With:
  • Frédéric Abrachkoff
  • Julie Brunie Tajan
  • Marion Delville
  • Brice Payen
  • Samuel Pelgris
  • Benjamin Savarit



Duration: 2h00
