MARIGOT: The first show that launches the new 2022-2023 season of the Chapel Theater will be held this weekend in Orient Bay. A renowned guest has been entrusted with the inauguration torch: Jérôme Rouger.
It is thanks to the recommendation of a regular spectator of the theater of the Chapel that the director Audrey Duputié invited Jérôme Rouger to present his one-man show entitled “Why the chickens prefer to be raised in battery”.
Although Jérôme Rouger studied mathematics, it was during a street theater festival that Jérôme, in his early twenties, had a revelation for the sixth art. In 1998, he created the company La Martingale, which since then has carried his artistic projects and those of a musician and a poet. “Why Chickens Prefer to be Raised in Batteries” is his ninth original creation with which he has been touring since 2014 and has over 300 performances to date.
The plot of this work was born during a festival around agriculture where the creative imagination of Jérôme Rouger stuck to the agricultural theme. During the 5 days of the festival, the work evolved empirically by focusing on the inspiring aspect of the egg and the chicken which will be at the heart of the show performed at the Théâtre de la Chapelle, with a touch of ecological awareness. The pitch: Professor Rouger, director of the mobile school of agriculture, addresses the issues of the rights of the hen and the living conditions of the egg.
Between scientific notions and more debatable remarks, this spectacular conference invests both the field of the absurd and the metaphysical to reflect current issues with an acute and shifted glance. As a specialist in diverted speeches, Jérôme Rouger will offer a speech of flawless humor coupled with a joyful metaphor of the human condition.
Performances: Friday, October 28, Saturday, October 29, and Sunday, October 30 at 7:30 pm
Admission fee: €25.
The ticket office open at the theater every evening from 6 to 7pm (except Saturday and Sunday)
