The hillside is currently in preparation for our summer theatre spectacle, to be performed by our friends ‘Le Petit Théatre de Blanzac’ during four evenings of July. This talented bunch of amateur enthusiasts with a sprinkling of professional input are always immensely ambitious in their productions and this time is no exception. A full costume performance of Balzac’s ‘Les Chouans’ with a large cast is in preparation, a full-blooded drama of revolution, army and rebel factions and inevitably, star-crossed lovers. With only a month to go, rehearsals are going on in earnest and the hillside is abuzz with activity.
The whole extravaganza is a delight for me as I have limitless opportunities for photos and candid portraits both on and behind the scenes. Last weekend was a beautiful sunny one and perfect for the odd bikers amongst the troupe to make the trip here on 2 wheels, so along with my usual photos of the actors and extras, which will be the subject of a couple of forthcoming posts, I snapped a few pictures of the bikes as well…………
