WHY DO WE LAUGH ?
Laugh is so important. I can’t imagine a day without laughing, to me it’s what represents life and what differentiates us from the other animals. Have you ever seen a cat making a joke to another cat? Me neither.
Laughing is the more efficient way to socialize. I can’t be friend with someone if I don’t laugh with this person, but I can be friend with anybody if we laugh together, and this despite everything else. I believe that among everything that defines the human being, the most significant and distinctive ones are art and laugh.
Laugh is also something important in the professional context. My father was saying (and still says) that laugh allows austerity to be avoided in a group of people, that without laughing a group isn’t solid and is no longer relevant. I couldn’t stay serious all day, it would make me too sad and I couldn’t concentrate anymore.
FESTIVAL DU RIRE
There are different ways of laughing, some are very simple, others are more developed. And concerning the more developed ones I wanted to speak today of an event that will take place in Bordeaux at the Femina theater from the 16th to the 23th of March 2019. Les Fous Rires de Bordeaux is a humorous festival during which will come one after another numerous shows, more than thirty in total. It will be for me the occasion to take some good time with my friends and to break the usual daily routine. The proposed shows are very diversified, among them: stand-up, one-(wo)man shows, magical shows, musical humorous shows and others. There are some great French names like Les Chevaliers du Fiel, Kyan Khojandi, Ben & Arnaud Tsamère, Redouanne Harjane or Laurie Peret for example.
I was speaking of art and laugh as distinctive signs of human beings, wasn’t I? Because what I find beautiful with humorous shows is that those two disciplines join together.
