We wish to alert you to the risk of disappearance of Montévidéo, place of contemporary creations in Marseille in which the company Diphtong and Festival Actoral reside. Their situation today is really alarming.

Montévidéo, Diphtong Cie & Actoral need your support and your voice as a citizen, spectator, artist ... Your testimonials will be invaluable to support our approaches with all the actors of this file in order to find a solution of conciliation, and to avoid the prospect of a pure and simple disappearance of this place of creation and artistic action in the heart of Marseille.

2666 from the novel by Roberto Bolaño / adaptation and stage direction : Julien Gosselin / scenography : Hubert Colas / with : Rémi Alexandre, Guillaume Bachelé, Adama Diop, Joseph Drouet, Denis Eyriey, Antoine Ferron, Noémie Gantier, Carine Goron, Alexandre Lecroc, Frédéric Leidgens, Caroline Mounier, Victoria Quesnel, Tiphaine Raffier / © Simon Gosselin

After the stunning Particules élémentaires, Julien Gosselin tackles the novel-world of a Chilean author who disappeared in 2003. A monumental work brewing genres, epochs, cities and characters in a maelstrom of multiple sensations. A Homeric crossing in the long course that could be a date. This twelve-hour fresco is an exceptional dive in a literary work.

On tour : 11-26 March 2017 in Théâtre National de Strasbourg; 6 May 2017 in La Filature, scène nationale de Mulhouse; 17-21 May 2017 in Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam
