Performance / Spectacle musical


Do you hear what I hear? Two musicians on stage, the lyrical singer Pauline Sikirdji and two actors playing DJs mixing live on turntables. Their plan is to take us on a trip through the music that haunts or enchants us, to share what it means to listen, to make someone hear, and to communicate what we’ve heard. It’s a concert designed to make us prick up our ears by delving into Robert Palmer and Purcell, rock compositions by Sylvain Cartigny and Malher, John Cage and Dalida. For the pleasure of feeling heard.

Mathieu Bauer
After training as a musician, in 1989 Mathieu Bauer created the Sentimental Bourreau company with a few other people, and has been the company’s artistic director since 1999. His productions have been regular features at MC93 – Bobigny, Les Subsistances in Lyon, and Théâtre de la Bastille in Paris. Some of his plays have been performed at international festivals (Avignon, Ruhrfestspiele, La Bâtie-Festival, the Salamanca International Art Festival, etc.). Bauer also works as a stage musician-composer-actor in France and Germany. After he directed several works at Nouveau théâtre de Montreuil (Top Dogs, Tristan et…, Please Kill me…), he was appointed theater director in 2011. During the 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 seasons, he premiered Une Faille, a unique and unifying 8-episode “theater series”, like a television series. In 2015, he premiered The Haunting Melody, a show based on the idea that listening is like taking a walk through the music, sounds, and noises that fill our lives.
