LES DAMNES

Eric Sleichim and BL!NDMAN [sax] will open the 70th Festival d’Avignon alongside the Comédie Française directed by Ivo Van Hove. On the Cour d’Honneur of the Palais des Papes they present The Damned, after Luchino Visconti’s motion picture.

The Damned (or Les Damnés) is the account of the downfall of a wealthy industrialist family during the rise of power of the Nazis. Visconti confronts us with the dark side of human behaviour and shows us how easily this family conspires with an extreme-right regime, solely out of pursuit of gain.

For his first collaboration with the Comédie Française Ivo Van Hove asked Eric Sleichim once more to write the music for the performance.
