Three performers offer body and voice to the world of Brigitte Fontaine, a world made tangible by visual artist Geneviève Grenier. A collection of texts, songs and other memories create the legacy of a newly-formed species: the Bébés Fontaine. A poetic ode to the imaginary and to anti-conformism.
A tribute to Brigitte Fontaine’s career spanning from the 1960s to today, featuring the rebel icon’s most militant, compelling and angry songs. Le Bien-être Social Club brings together a disparate set of universal (im)personalities who have been presenting the work of Brigitte Fontaine onstage for the past three years.
