The French stage director Joris Lacoste travels the world with his series of virtuously composed and performed speech suites and leaves an enthusiastic audience behind. Eliciting rhythm and melodies from everywhere, be it daily chatter or elaborate documents, he creates a collage of poignant and cheerful music theater.
