Pȃques de L’Art à Sers, Fȇte ses 10 ans
Last Sunday, we spent a delightful day at the fete at Sers, invited by our old friend Lucie Landa who had lived with us for nearly two years in the old Roundhouse days in London in the early 70s. Now she clowns and sings with Jean. I predict a great future for them both because they work so hard and they are so talented.
Their repertoire included songs from Isle de Reunion, Madagascar, American Blues, and traditional French songs. They were terrific. They had followed four young Capoeira-style break-dancers on stage – a hard act to follow because they also knew what they were doing and performed tricky manoeuvres with skill and apparent lack of fear. They were called Kidz of Dance and their act in the programme was described as hip-hop – but I thought it was much more complex than that. They too were from Paris.
Hopefully they, Lucie and Jean will all be back next year – that is if they don’t get too famous in the intervening months.
The fete was a friendly affair, once one paid the 2euros entrance fee, you had the run of the village. There was a beautiful chateau with the dozens of vintage cars, an art exhibition, pottery sculptures and of course food and drink to buy.
