55 minutes

Bordeaux Festival of Arts
Time is money. This is the idea behind X minutes: each time the performance is bought by a new theatre, this trio composed of Martin Schick, François Gremaud and Viviane Pavillon write and add a further 5 minutes. This means that the show is an evolving one, a “sustainable comedy” with a neo-liberal logic: the more often it is shown, the longer it gets, the longer it gets, the more expensive it gets, the more expensive it gets, the more recognition it receives, and the more recognition it receives, the more often it is shown. FAB is the twelfth co-producer to host the project, and has bought 55 minutes for €4,000. The performance is thus entitled 55 minutes, presenting the 50 minutes previously created and adding 5 new minutes, created especially at La Cité du Vin and for FAB.
Other rules govern the process: each 5-minute piece is acted in the language of the place in which it was created, and each buyer provides a prop to be included in the scene.
La Cité du Vin has provided a Venencia… a small cylindrical cup attached to a long shaft used for pulling wine from sherry barrels in Andalusia!
In association with Bordeaux Festival of Arts

Ratatouille

Culinary cinema season
On the first Wednesday evening of every month, La Cité du Vin will be showing a cinematographic work in conjunction with a culinary tasting by a chef, in tribute to the film.
Remy is a young rat whose dream is to become a great French chef. Nothing can discourage him, neither his family, nor the fact that he is a rat in a profession where rats are hated. Remy will do anything to fulfil his dream… and living in the sewers by the famous restaurant owned by culinary hero Auguste Gusteau will give him just that chance! Despite dangers and pitfalls, the temptation to venture into this forbidden world is too strong.
Torn between his dream and reality, Remy will discover the true meaning of adventure, friendship, and family… and will learn that he must find the courage to be himself: a rat who wants to become a great chef…
A film by Brad Bird featuring the voices of: Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano, Janeane Garofalo... And in French, Guillaume Lebon, Thierry Ragueneau, Camille…

Bottling

Four improvisational actors, a musician and a lighting engineer will capture fleeting stories based on themes provided by the audience. As soon as they enter the auditorium spectators are immersed in a world of spontaneous improvisation by a somewhat unpredictable musician. It is clear from the outset that anything is possible. Anything can spark creativity and fits of laughter. Although the audience chooses the starting points for the stories by suggesting the themes, no one decides where, how, or in what state things will end up…

Bottling is a crazy, interactive, fun, well-structured and very quaffable performance.
