Apollinaire Corps Accords combines the jazz of the Moutin brothers with the poetry of Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918). On the thread of freedom, iconoclasm and imagination, the poet-soldier’s phrasing is carried by the singer-actors Axelle du Rouret and Philippe Bérodot. In the intoxication and sensuality of his words, the dramaturgy emerges, in resonance with the music.

One day, in the shadow of a club, on an evening when it was half foggy, a figure appeared to me as if it had emerged from the poem La chanson du mal-aimé (Song of the ill-beloved), his figure had a double and it became clear to me that Guillaume Apollinaire should be incarnated on stage. The twins Louis and François Moutin, with their drawls, their physical and musical resonance, their passionate and enthralling rhythms, would no doubt play the two faces of the poet: the romantic ill-favoured wandering in search of love, always hopeless, and the sulphurous erotic bard playing generously with the flesh between bursts of laughter and bursts of shells. […] Through the poet, I have chosen to talk about love because it is universal. I have chosen to talk about love to laugh, to dream, to hope, to understand, to shiver, to dance, to cry, to love “always and for a long time”.
Axelle du Rouret
