Get ready, Adelaide – beloved French cabaret group Les Flaneurs Volants is BACQUE this season Fringe with the new show Jacques et Madeleine.
Combining a love story with comedy, beautiful French music and, of course, a very magnificent French-inspired performance.
The hapless character Jacques turned out to be his own department of lost and found loves. Crossing the French-speaking world on either side of the Atlantic, Jacques took us on a moving journey, rendered with a palette of some of the most exquisitely written French songs.
But what did Jacques learn about love and life in 2 seasons SOLD OUT Fringe? Will he finally find this Sally for his Harry, Edith for his Marcel?
You’ll find out in this latest installment of the Jacques trilogy, which features more beautiful French, Québécois and Cajun songs than you can point a wand to.
With a French soul bronzed by the Adelaide sun, Les Flâneurs Volants revel in engaging audiences through song, story and fun, evoking emotions ranging from joie de vivre to the despair of lost love. … very French, right? And seduction? But yes…
Covering the music of the French diaspora across time and space, Les Flâneurs Volants features evocative vocalist Jean-Marc Spiler, pumping accordionist/keyboardist Steve Oppes, Euro-jazz guitarist John Denlay, fearsome bassist Ian Davis, cool saxophonist/clarinettist Steve Eads, gypsy violinist Anne-Marie Meegan and star drummer Lewis Todd.
The group Les Flâneurs Volants are touring Adelaide and regional South Australia this Fringe season, taking the sold-out show to the Stirling Community Theatre, the beloved Wheatsheaf Hotel in Thebarton and Institute Hall at the Gawler Civic Center between the 18 February and March. 6.
