With the "Baladins de la Vallée", I' ve discovered new artistic territories :scenery & scenography.
It's a very rich and enthralling experience ,sometimes distressing and exacting but a truly positive one .
The charity organization stages comic opera spectacles ,performing in spectacle halls in the Val d' Oise (near Paris).
The most noteworthy feature of the organization lies in fact that all its members are voluntary amateurs .
My own challenge concerning the stage sets is to make them on a shoestring :the famous french "system D" and the art of recycling are essential ,I very much enjoy giving a second life to some artefacts ,yards of fabric or cardboard boxes and thumbing my nose at our consumer society .
