Sur la Route (French/English)

 

By Pierre van Sint Jan & Louise Hall - Theatre LOTE

Original music by van Sint Jan  & L.Hall

Directed by L. Hall

Suitable: Yrs 5-10

Duration: 50 minutes

 

“a comical rock and roll road show for French students with a Belgian flavour!”

 

wrestling with eels & escargots -  viande crue à l’école - an embarrassing mother

      un frère qui ne s’arrête pas de manger - confusions de langue

       en somme, “un fracas culturel!”

 

Pierre Alain is a musician and performer with an infectious zest for life, “un grand coeur”, and “une voix merveilleuse.”

 

Born of Belgian parents, Pierre has led a colourful and mainly itinerant bilingual life. In “Sur la route,” Pierre shares anecdotes from his experiences in “la Belgique,” the French-speaking country which is the brunt of many “blagues françaises!” He also makes some forays into la Suisse, la France et l’Australie.

 

‘Sur la route” incorporates side-splitting humour, a touch of Belgian history, original French rock songs, story-telling, audience participation and impersonations of famous Belgian comic- strip characters, including Pierre’s own invention, the retired explorer cum tour-guide, “Docteur Sleuth.”
