Tout Moreau (2016-19)
Jeanne Moreau’s songs rocked my childhood, my mother hummed them all the time. Jeanne and her songs are a little part of my family.” B. Cirla
Playing with their skills and their personalities, Eléonore Bovon and Brigitte Cirla, both singer, performer and composer celebrate one of the most fascinating characters of the french cultural heritage: Jeanne Moreau.
Through its most famous songs, like « le tourbillon » immortalized by Jules and Jim’s movie, and also its lesser-known Norge interpretations, the perfomance Tout Moreau unveils the route and the words of a free woman, asserted in her artistic choices and personal commitments.
The cello of Marie Tournemouly accompanies them singing the time flying away, the inalterable order of the seasons, the intensity of the moment, and an Epicurean vision of intense and absolute love, free from any hypocrisy and doctrine: just like Jeanne Moreau.
The perfomance Tout Moreau is a recital lasting one hour and quarter and mixes songs and texts as messages sent to Jeanne Moreau, Brigitte Bardot, François Truffaut, echoing the great artist’s carreer.
The registered Jeanne Moreau’s voice is also heard at moments, claiming her artistic and loving choices.
“I don’t give a shit about happiness, what’s important is joy, and the possibility of experiencing all the emotions…” J. Moreau
