Longtime contributors to Chaillot, inventors of fables and committed proponents of modern languages, Elise Vigier and Marcial Di Fonzo Fo sidetrack to cinema, but at its origins: Méliès.

 

Regarded as a pioneer of cinema, Georges Méliès, a showman and magician, discovered the cinematograph at the first public screening held by the Lumière brothers. Having directed nearly six hundred films, bringing his magic, artfulness and creativity to this then nascent industry, he basically invented special effects. Slipping inside various characters, the moon traveller used voiceover to split up into various selves, casually and magically incarnating various objects, sets, machines or props.  An accomplished storyteller, he revealed his extraordinary story as he came to grips with multiple transformations and transfiguration, from fortune to ruin. Inspired by his writing and interviews, Elise Vigier and Marcial Di Fonzo Bo -  contemporary inventors and casual magicians -  will bring a sense of realism to his wildest dreams and his most unbelievable creations, celebrating this crazy art of imagination. Nothing should be denied to the first explorer of the moon!
