MONSIEUR DE POUCEAUGNAC / MOLIERE - LULLY
Monsieur de Pourceaugnac is a 'comédie ballet', a performance which combines theatre, music and dance, written by Molière and Lully and first performed for king Louis XIV on October 6th 1669 at the Château de Chambord.
The Théâtre de l'Eventail company created a theatre version of Monsieur de Pourceaugnac in 2014. Their artistic director, Raphaël de Angelis, has asked La Rêveuse to create a comédie-ballet version in June 2016. Our company has been in residence at Figeac, before giving the first performances in Orléans and at the Château de Chambord where this piece was first created in 1669!

The Lettres Persanes... with new arrival
A fresh look at French society
During the first semester of 2016 La Rêveuse is working on a project based on Montesquieu's Lettres Persanes, with two classes of new arrivals, a group of adults from ACM Formation and a group of youngsters from the ARTP FLE class at the Lycée Paul Gaugin (students of Patricia Du Rieu).
Our project encourages students to use the Lettres Persanes as inspiration to help them to describe their own impressions of french society today and to compare their own experiences as travellers and new arrivals in the 20th century with those of Montesquieu's Persians in the 18th century.
