Anne Lepla | Guick Yansen
Part of the CLEA artist-in-residence program in the Quercitain and the Valenciennes area, the 2L theatrical company has been meeting primary school, secondary school and high school pupils to spontaneously share their relationship to pop music. My Life is a jukebox is a musical theatrical multi-faceted show in which memories, emotions and stories intertwine to father a living jukebox.
Which song has been having a special place in your life? What does such a song tell about you? How does it tell your emotions and feelings? Our existence and past are pervaded with songs. Slices of life hatch out of a few notes. Some lyrics and songs haunt us and incarnate our memories.
With lyrics gathered by the youth, songs appear and encourage secrets to be shared and imagination to be unleashed. Anne Lepla and Guick Yansen share the microphone to better understand people. Which songs tell your story? What is your musical temperament?
The show lies on a constant back and forth between the actors and musicians’ performances on stage and children and adolescents’ recorded testimonies. Actor Damien Olivier dialogues with voices and makes partners out of these young people. This human jukebox takes us in a journey at the heart of music, memories and intimacy.
