In the tradition of mystical farce?

Summary of the play: As part of the Fidei donum exchanges, Father Christophe-Amadou, originally from Burkina Faso, has just been appointed parish priest of Labastide-Murat in Quercy. What luck ! Father Christophe-Amadou is also a fervent admirer of the imperial epic and of King Murat… The Troupe Maïti Girtanner 2, in residence in Dax, reconnects with a genre that Paul Claudel himself ventured into, and which earned him his greatest successes, the mystical farce. The result is a funny, caustic, deep, poetic fable… “Any resemblance to real people is coincidental, but it’s all true, even what we made up…”

Founder and animator of the Troupe de Cendrillon, now Troupe Maïti Girtanner, he has staged plays by Molière, Saint-Exupéry, Anouilh, Sartre, Labiche, Ionesco, Goldoni, Marivaux, Romains, Shakespeare, Jarry, Rostand, Obaldia, Giraudoux, Miller …
