Chapi Chapo, like when you were little
To Aniana. Visual artists, now based in Aniane, revisit the mythical animated series created by Stefano Lonati and Italo Bettiol in 1974. The pioneering series has marked several generations thanks to its playful and magical universe carried by the avant-garde music of François of Roubaix. A dialogue takes place, by confronting the original pieces (archives, puppets, unpublished documents) with contemporary artists who are developing a poetic imagination.
