Cie "It is not Common" loads you into an original work around the history(story) of the sculptures of the basilica. False crazy lecturers and competition(help,competitions) of GIF are in programme!

An improbable narrative around these works. With a humor being harsh, they tell you the crazy story of these alabasters: the workshops(studios) of Nottingham, their function(office) "post-it" in the Middle Ages, their break-in in the eighties, the scientific survey and the FBI, until their return in the fold. Dive into an exciting history(story) where it is not so easy to disentangle(solve) the truth of forgery do not miss an opportunity(occasion) (unique(only)) to laugh (many(a lot)) and in passage to learn it (rather well all the same) on a heritage just brought in by journey! To prepare this evening, a competition(help) of GIF will be thrown(launched) every Thursday on September 5th, 12th and 19th, via the social networks of the City of Bordeaux: watch for the comment of a detail of sculptures and answer (and the funniest) with the most appropriate GIF according to you! And yes, images of art are the average main part of communication in the Middle Ages, then leave free - court with your imagination, see which interpretation(performance) these works inspire you and translate your answer into version 2.0: post GIF;-)! The participants in competitions undertake to be available on September 20th to participate in one of the 3 representations of real - false conference, during which will take place semi-final and final of competition(help).
