"A show conceived with the formidable "teller" of poetry Timothée Laine who takes us into a whirlwind of words, texts, known or unknown, highlighted by the beautiful love songs of the trouvères."

From the Middle Ages to the present day, with well-known and lesser-known poets, Amours, Amour… gives voice to texts that deal with amorous passion, friendship, filial love, desire or the absence of the loved one. It proves that beyond the metamorphosis of a language over time, love, "this sublime brake on the fall" or this accelerator, is like a permanent ash, indestructible under fallow human speech. These poems are illustrated with songs from the 12th, 13th and 14th centuries.


The expression of love, in poetry and in music, has a history, a beginning: at the very beginning of the 12th century, for the first time, artists sang their passions in their everyday language and no longer in Latin. The troubadours in the south and then the trouvères in the north, express the tensions and aspirations of feudal society. So-called “courteous” love is constitutive of this significant event in our artistic history: the birth of song.


The poet Timothée Laine will choose, according to the performances, texts by authors from different periods, including: Guillaume de Machaut, Pierre de Ronsard, Philippe Jaccottet, Octavio Paz, Jean de la Fontaine, the Abbé de l'Attaignant...
