Compagnie Oposito & Décor Sonore

Le Cinématophone

Le Cinématophone is an electro-lyrical brass band for a diva and 8 musical bodies.
New reels!

In 1994, Oposito and Décor Sonore collaborated to conceive an astonishing street theatre show with a revolutionary multi-phonic sound system.
Eight robot-like characters, half flesh and blood, half loudspeakers, conjure up stunning sound images. Amongst them, a diva appears to make them perform scenes from her own life, like a brass band conductor gone mad.

Unrivalled since its creation,
Le Cinématophone is now coming back!

Cie Oposito
For thirty years, cie Oposito has crossed the roads from Noisy-le-Sec to Addis Ababa. Expressing its art in the streets, boulevards, squares, on the water and the sea. Imagining modern rituals and scenarios that can slip into the life of the city and highlight its hidden, forgotten and unknown parts. Looking for the movement that suits the crowd best, Oposito draws and creates images that are not afraid of spaces, noises or storms.

Oposito continues to explore theatrical expressions in itinerant shows. A story that appears, slips and disappears in the heart of the city, in which the viewer's perception is a physical sensation coupled with a poetic emotion. The parade is one of the signs most suited to the language of crowds and large spaces. Its movement is built in the form of successive appearances, a rhythm that takes the public by surprise to embark it as an unconditional passenger of our dreams.


Cie Décor Sonore
Directed by the composer Michel Risse, Décor Sonore is a unique composition and production company dedicated to sound creation.

In intimate settings or on places where thousands of spectators can gather, they create poetic and emotional "sound theatre" which transforms everyday objects and urban spaces into musical instruments.
Ordinary passers-by also turn into demanding music lovers. Internationally recognized as one of the most innovative French companies, Décor Sonore has also a "creation space" which focuses on the transmission and awareness of sound ecology.
