François Chaignaud & Nino Laisné

Romances inciertos, un autre Orlando

A queer-poetic figure dances and sings to Spanish melodies from the 16th and 17th centuries in a constant metamorphosis against the backdrop of a romantic landscape of embroidered, tapestry-like nature paintings. The music is conjured by four musicians playing a select palette of instruments including the bandoneon, harmonica and viola da gamba live on stage. Exquisitely dressed up, French artist François Chaignaud displays his mastery as a dancer, singer and travesty artist: as La Doncella Guerrera, a girl going to war, as Saint Michael and as Tarara, an Andalusian woman subjected to the pain of love.
