The cinema of Jacques Demy designs a world - a world of ports (Nantes, Nice, Cherbourg, Rochefort, Los Angeles, Marseilles) crossed by amorous to-ings and fro-ings, in which the imaginary always gets the better of the impossible. In nineteen films, which the filmmaker wanted all 'linked to one another', he created a Pop human comedy, interlaced with dreams and made up of a host of enchanted singing characters ever ready to dance, fluctuating between subtle derision of the words and sensuality. The show will offer an experience through this very colourful Demy-monde that is a real continent unto itself.
