Contes de la Méditerranée

Châteaurenard - Bibliothèque municipale - Litterature & Poetry - Le 29 avril à 18h - Free

Jihad Darwiche raconte un florilège de contes traditionnels des pays riverains de la mer Méditerranée. Grèce, Espagne, Tunisie, Palestine...

Ces contes s'égrènent comme un collier de perles brillantes et témoignent de la civilisation commune de cette région que l'on nomme parfois en Orient "la mer du milieu".

Bercé dans son enfance au Liban par le zajal et les contes que racontaient sa mère et les femmes de son village, Jihad Darwiche prend la parole comme journaliste de radio à Paris et à Beyrouth puis comme enseignant d'arabe à l'université de Provence et enfin comme conteur. Depuis 1984, il anime des veillées de contes où s'entremêlent le merveilleux des Mille et une nuits, la sagesse et le sourire. Il a publié une trentaine d'ouvrages pour enfants et pour adultes dont "le conte oriental, la tradition orale au Liban" ou le célèbre "Sagesses et malices de Nasreddine, le fou qui était sage."
