Les Bonimenteurs

Les Bonimenteurs

Jonathan Capdevielle / 105 min / Theatre

Actor-director Jonathan Capdevielle and his sidekicks Arthur B. Gillette and Jennifer Eliz Hutt reinvent the dialogue, sounds and music of Dario Argento’s masterpiece Suspiria. In Édition limitée GIFF offers this show in association with Théâtre Saint-Gervais and the Locarno Film Festival.

From 18 years old

Three performers reinvent the dialogue, sound effects and soundtrack of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, a cult film of Italian cinema. Playing the role of ‘bonimenteur’ – the person in charge of commenting on the film in the era of silent cinema – they narrate the film live using improvisation, songs and sound effects and at times enter into a state of uncontrolled trance.
