[Les Lilas • France]
As a prelude to Relectures 14, Nicolas Richard makes a vibrant and caustic homage to the outsiders in the music world, with a new performance, a work in progress presented for the first time in public. He leads us masterfully into the synthetic torrents and songs of the Web princes; fearless singers seeking a hypothetical glory. Frequently hilarious, the writing and the playlist are right on target, but are never far from a feeling a tenderness for “those who sing, but never sing”. Nicolas Richard is there where we expect him, accelerating phrases that go in all directions…as for instance, a conference that offers the portraits of several eminent outsiders and accessorially makes a case for engagement in art, however relative it may be. Everything goes, except continuing to pretend.
