Danse Macabre: The Testament of Francois Villon
Created by Stepan Simek, Jean Luc Boucherot
Danse Macabre: The Testament of François Villon is a one-person show with music and puppetry based on the surprisingly modern and relevant autobiographical poem, The Testament by the 15th century French poet, revolutionary rabble-rouser, balladeer, thief, a prototypical “protest singer,” and a something of a medieval “rock star,” François Villon. Villon’s poetry and his wild lifestyle became an inspiration for several generations of poets, and he’s become something of a patron saint for countless counter-cultural young artists and singers all over the world, most notably Bob Dylan and the underground dissident artists and singers in the former Eastern Europe.
The last three weekends in June. Please check with the Hand 2 Mouth website for updates on performances.
