Immoral Recipes (2023-2024)

Sound drama for voice and live electronics

Literature and poetry are full of texts on the pleasures of great food, on the voluptuousness of wines, on the ambiguity of the art of
seduction and its relationship to the good food. French expressions and synonyms are legion; we devour, we swallow, we
snack, we ingest, we stuff ourselves, we eat, eating, we lunch, we dine, we taste, we soup, we peck, we gulp, we nourrish ourselves with delectation. Gastrolâtres are everywhere!
Sitting down at the table involves a multitude of implications in our school boy imaginations. And it is on this blurred border – suggested by nourishing but also sensual pleasures of the mouth – that the duo formed by Brigitte Cirla and Sébastien Béranger founds its performance.

A quasi-radio show performed and transformed in real time in front of the public

Immoral Recipes is based on the collection of the same name by Manuel Vásquez Montalbán. In his preface, the author states that

love…”. The duo formed by Brigitte Cirla and Sébastien Béranger bases their writing work on a joyful premise.

    Difffusion, delegated production
    Created in April 2019, the association Difffusion is dedicated to musical creation and contemporary languages. It promotes the intersection between music and other artistic disciplines. Difffusion defends the proposals of its artists through the dissemination, promotion and mediation of their works.
    The company is based in the PACA region where it carries out most of its artistic and educational activities. Around the performing arts and mediation, it has forged many links and partnerships with local artistic structures: gmem-CNCM-marseille, PIC Télémaque, Vasarely Fondation, Karwan association, 6mic, Fabrique Mimont (Cannes), Voix Polyphoniques…
    Difffusion carries and supports a significant number of musical and transdisciplinary projects. Difffusion works on hybrid artistic proposals, at the crossroads of mediation, new technologies and live performance. The aim is to offer new forms of concerts that integrate mediation and a playful approach to musical content.
    The association mainly targets the general public and new places, in particular to open contemporary musical creation to new listeners.
