We start on time. Right on time. It's the pride of transport companies. The sound commander reminds us of the usual safety rules, but very soon his sonic scepter goes haywire. ...
What cruise have the passengers gotten themselves into? We'll notice above all that the galley is having fun listening to the songs, texts and beat-boxes that Bertrand records on the fly.
Big or small, the listening passengers gradually become the real actors of this wandering. Once they've broken through the four walls, they can become singers, dancers and even the conductor of the show.
That's why no two bAlllAd shows are exactly alike. It's enriched by encounters.
H.F. headphones and a highly intuitive portable recording system overcome technical and space constraints.
The bAlllAd respects the sound environment. There's only one way to discover the reasons for this gathering: wait for a free headset and join in the journey.
- a stroll with one "L" is a walk
- a stroll with two "Ls" is a song, a poem.
- a bAlllAd with three "Ls" is the sum of the two!
A dressing room and a 16-amp socket for recharging batteries.
Accompanying persons are needed for helmet distribution.
One accompanying person is needed for every 40 to 50 helmets.
Helmets can only be used for bAlllAd, and are neither Wi-Fi nor
Bluetooth. Theft is therefore rare, since the useless object is out of context.
bAlllAd can come with a cart for distribution and
costumes for the attendants.
Artistic and scouting
The show may require advance scouting, to prepare the route.
bAlllAd is not a fixed show. It can be linked to the theme of your event,
or involve other artists (dancers for a choreography during the bAlllAd,
musician for a chorus etc.). ).
All audiences, all seasons
Its mobile nature and low technical requirements make bAlllAd an easily adaptable show. bAlllAd has been performed in media libraries, ski resorts, schools, colleges and companies, for example.
Running time: 40 min.
Capacity: up to 200 people.
Open to the general public.
Street performance adaptable for indoor use.
