La disparition d’Everett Ruess – CENTQUATRE – Win tickets!

La Disparition D’Everett Ruess – une histoire Américaine – Cent Quatre Paris – October 31st (theatre / live music) and November 2nd (full concert)

At the head of 49 Swimming Pools, his quartet with panoramic music oscillating between pop and folk-rock, Emmanuel Tellier proposes with La disparition d’Everett Ruess to retrace the steps of a mythical character of the American West, who disappeared in the heart of Utah in November 1934. The CENTQUATRE-PARIS presents this transversal project in two different versions: the show version, between documentary theatre and a rock performance, and the concert version.

At the beginning, there is a true story, an amazing one: in 1934, a 20-year-old boy disappears in a desert in the western United States. Accident ? Murder? Revenge ? We’ll never know … Who was Everett Ruess? What was he doing in the fascinating but dangerous landscapes of Utah? We are following him closely… If you like Into the wild and also Woody Guthrie, Steinbeck, Annie Proulx, Cormac McCarthy, there is no doubt you will love this powerful creation, between theater, documentary and epic rock performance.

In a skilfully orchestrated mix of genres, Emmanuel Tellier and his band 49 Swimming Pools tell us this story, both tragic and marvelous. They managed to make the wait and the search by the two parents (wonderful English-speaking actors Jayne Morley and Alan Fairbairn) beyond ‘pathos’, through a purgatory and redemptive poetry.
The band has its own working instruments – recording studio, label, publishing structure – which are the tools of a non-negotiable freedom. Thus, the group is in charge of its agenda, and goes to the recording studio whenever they want. These four musicians are French, but fed almost exclusively by music from elsewhere – United States and Great Britain especially. On their website they introduce themselves saying « We live in France (Zimboland, Loire Valley). But be warned : we don’t play very French. »
