THE CRAZY ADVENTURE OF THE FRENCH LANGUAGE by Lorànt Deutsch
Alone on stage in front of a giant screen, Lorànt Deutsch takes you in 1 hour and 15 minutes to a surprising and entertaining cultural show/conference. After Paris and the roads of France, he tackles for you an exciting subject where his talent as a storyteller works wonders ! From “Ave Cesar” to “Ouesh ma gueule! “, the French language has never ceased to transform and change, neither for the better nor for the worse. No, but to become a communication tool that allows us to live together, here, now. To appreciate all its flavours, all you have to do is imagine the French language as a special dish of the day concocted from Latin, Greek, Anglo-Saxon, Arabic, Breton and other specialities. Disgusting, this mixture? No, on the contrary, unique, original, and delicious. So let us rejoice, the French language is more alive than ever. Open to all, Molière’s language is and will remain a welcoming language.
French actor/director and author, Lorànt Deutsch oscillates between comedy, theatre and historical film. Having become a must, he plays Jean-Paul Sartre or Nicolas Fouquet for television, Mozart or Oscar Wilde in the theatre, Jean de la Fontaine and many roles in comedies for the cinema.
“Metronome”, his first book on the history of Paris, was a huge success with more than 2 million copies sold and adapted for television.
His second book “Hexagone”, a 2600-year journey through the history of France, already sold more than 300,000 copies, has also been published for television.
Sparkling, funny, sensitive and adventurous, he now offers us a great journey to the heart of the French language.
