Open “Pandora’s Box” at the Cirque des mirages in Pézenas. The mythical duo of Cirque des mirages celebrates its 20th anniversary. Alternately a disturbing storyteller and a bewitching singer, Yanowski unfolds in striking gestures. At the piano, Parker hammers out a strange rhythm with metronome precision. Hallucinated writers, murderous poets, travelers without luggage, from songs to stories, discover a procession of quirky characters. A masterful moment for a show of corrosive and insolent humour.

Cirque des mirages, “Pandora’s Box”, Thursday January 26 at 8:45 p.m., Pézenas municipal theater, prices: €20 to €5.

Mélissa Laveaux for Chants d’hiver at La Cigalière in Sérignan. Shared between different cultures, imbued with multiple musical influences, Mélissa Laveaux displays an artistic identity in her image: plural and open to the world. With Mama Forgot Her Name Was Miracle, Mélissa Laveaux re-wilds the lullaby by summoning powerful voices from beyond time, from Audre Lorde to the goddess Lilith, to create a whole new mythology. Alternative. Feminist. Modern. Subversive. Because to change legends is to change the present.

As part of the Chants d’hiver festival from January 26 to 28, at La Cigalière. With Marie Sigal and Laura Cahen on the 26th; Ndobo-Emma and Mélissa Lavaux on the 27th and Justine Blue Trio and La Yegros on the 28th.
