The Little Tippler sur les ondes
A Journey Through Space & Time
Following its great success on stage, The Little Tippler sets sail on the vastness of radio waves. This audio creation invites the audience on a literary and musical journey.
Sonia Menoud’s prose poem travels from a local bar to the vast and dusty Arizona plains before returning to childhood and the countryside.
Emily Dickinson’s poetry links these worlds. The embedded poems resonate with the play’s topics : emancipation from the past and one’s beliefs. The title refers to one of her poems : “To see the little Tippler / Leaning against the – Sun”.
A tale of empowerment, The Little Tippler is an initiation quest towards the expansion of consciousness and freedom. An invitation to get drunk on poetry.
