“L’Histoire du soldat” is read, played and danced by three actors / narrators and one or several dancers, accompanied by a septet of instruments. Based on a Russian folk tale drawn from the collection of Alexander Afanasyev called “The Runaway soldier and the Devil”, it tells the story of a soldier who returns from the war.
In reference to this theatrical work, the room allows a discreet view of the village of Denges.
“Between Denges and Denezy,
A soldier returns home …
He has fifteen days off
He’s been on the road for a long time…
Has walked, has walked a lot,
Can’t wait to get there
Because he walked a lot.”
