Jersey Arts Centre has been working with Art’Comedia since 2013, and Bertrand and Veronique have been our respective Musical Director and Vocal Coach, and musicians, on our past three Christmas productions.

For their October 2013/14 residency Art’Comedia presented:

  • INFINITE LANDSCAPES: POETIC ORIGAMI
  • at the Old Magistrate’s Court and the Benjamin Meaker Theatre.

Now based in L’Hermitage, Brittany, Art’Comedia combined music, video, dance and performance to create a multimedia exploration of childhood and memory in ‘Infinite Landscapes’. The piece began in a strange room in a museum populated by only three people and a piano, and transported its audience around the world, through time and through minds. This tri-lingual piece, performed in English, French and Portuguese, was a true melting-pot of cultures, art forms and ideas.

After a couple of concerts on the Benjamin Meaker stage in 2015 and 2017, in September 2018 Art’Comedia returned with a concert, ahead of their work on our third Christmas production of Alan Bennett’s adaptation of ‘The Wind in the Willows’ to rehearse a showcase of pieces from various musicals. They performed in-the-round, allowing for an intimate musical experience, and members of Jersey Arts Centre’s Christmas company made cameo appearances, singing songs that Bertrand Larmet and Veronique Martinez had been working on with them to perfect.

We are delighted that B&V wish to be a part of our programme this spring in keeping our audiences, and our island community, culturally and socially engaged!
