After Lucretia Borgia in 2015 and Peer Gynt in 2018, David Bobée is back at Les Salins. He adapts and stages Elephant Man, the legendary play by Bernard Pomerance, starring in an incredible duet: JoeyStarr and Béatrice Dalle.

Written in 1977, The Elephant Man is Bernard Pomerance's most famous play. Entered the repertoire of the British National Theaters, this huge success is played several years on Broadway. He received a Tony Award in 1979, and in 1980 David Bowie will be the principal performer. It's also a David Lynch movie released the same year. In David Bobée's version, JoeyStarr plays Elephant Man alongside Beatrice Dalle. The moral of this fable could be summed up as follows: the monster is never the one we believe. The broken and sublime mouth of JoeyStarr becomes, the time of an evening, the face of our report to the difference. One draws a real lesson of tolerance.
