BLACK BOY PAR LA CIE THÉÂTRE DU MANTOIS AU CHAMPILAMBART
Theater, music, drawing, to see with family, from 10 years
Published in 1945, Black Boy is the first novel written by an African-American on the daily in the US segregationist South. Richard Wright tells the story of a black childhood broken by racism and ordinary hatred. Confronted with injustice, misery, the violence of relations between blacks and whites, he manages to get out of the straitjacket in which one wants to lock him up thanks to his discovery of reading and writing. The show offers a sensitive "vibration" of this mythical and moving novel that mixes a comedian, a musician and a comic illustrator on stage. These three voices start from the same momentum, with the will to give to see, to hear, to share simultaneously and by all the senses, this major work.
