L’Homme qui plantait des arbres

Alexandra Grimal
World premiere: 2021

Based on the novel by Jean Giono.

L’Homme qui plantait des arbres creates a space of silence and beauty where sound pulses like the life of a forest. Scraps of melodies emerge from the orchestra and disappear to make room for a profusion of sound. A dense and organic life force made of a thousand voices, nurturing and dark like the earth, starts to creak. The cambium flows within the trees’ wood and we can sense the possibilities of all life forms that will grow from it…
