festival of fashion

Every year, between galette and candlemas, the Kraspek Myzik, a musical haunt perched on the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, opens the festival season. With Plug & Play, the Kraspek delivers great 15 (really) music like no other taking all alternative genres by storm. Folk, punk, rock, electro, song, pop, anything goes as long as it’s crazy and edgy. In bulk, this year, Wendy Martínez, Castor de Madera, Melnelson, Los Despentes or the folk legend Emmanuelle Parrenin. And close at Marché Gare with Imparfait and Gazzel.

Plug & play, at Kraspek Myzik, until February 3.

The news zinzins

Like many comedians with a shop and in the news, Sophia Aram is well known to France Inter listeners, especially for her acid innings. The comedian’s 5th program –whose previous stage in Lyon had caused quite a stir–, still “in creation”, makes fun of certain people who have invaded the news in recent months, with her own look. Anti-vaxxers, conspirators, zemmouriens, petit bourgeois, poutinolâtres, hardline yellow vests… they have all gone to the flamethrower of humor.

This season, Jean Bellorini’s TNP paid a triple tribute to Marguerite Duras. After The pain Y the reckless, the triptych closes with a final piece. The actor Mathieu Coblentz becomes director here and presents the human species. The piece is made with a montage of texts by Duras (The pain), by Dionys Mascolo (On an effort of memory) and Vasily Grossman (Treblinka’s hell). the human species echoes Robert Antelme’s homonymous work, where he recounts his experience as a deportee in Nazi concentration camps. The piece presented at the NPT evokes the impossible return to life when one has experienced the unimaginable and miraculously emerges from it. A particularly strong work.

If you had to try to understand the springs of propaganda and the influence it can have on the greatest tragedies of humanity of the last two centuries, just listen to Radio des Mille Collines. For months, this Rwandan radio station was the great orchestrator of the massacre of the Tutsis by launching repeated calls for murder, mixed with fake news. It is this uplifting story that Hate Radio tells, the program created a little over ten years ago by the Swiss playwright Milo Rau, one of the jewels of contemporary European theatre. A show about the power of words and their fun, all the more chilling because it is, it must be said, exclusively documentary.

the school of change

“Now what? This is the question that the À l’école de l’Anthropocène event will ask itself at the end of its 5th edition. Initiated by the Urban School of Lyon, the festival offers activities, meetings, debates, workshops, courses ( literature, philosophy, social sciences, law, biology, etc.) All this to allow us to better understand the global change of our environment and our society through topics as diverse as ecology, justice, technology. , everything must be said. Many guests and experts are invited along with authors such as Brigitte Giraud, Sibylle Grimbert, Géraldine Kosiak, Claudie Hunzinger or Wilfried N’sondé. What to do then? Go to the Rize, which hosts the event. Even camp there .
