LES PETITS VIOLONS DES CALANQUES
The Petits Violons des Calanques project is conducted in partnership between the CIQ Les Hauts de Mazargues La Cayolle and the Ensemble C Barré. The two structures joined forces in 2018 with the aim of implementing artistic and pedagogical collaboration around instrumental practice at school and musical creation.
The project is part of the local context of the Cayolle district in the south of Marseille, which is part of the predominantly disadvantaged districts. The action aims to initiate and train schoolchildren in instrumental and orchestral practice in order to guide them in their music education, raise their awareness of artistic professions and encourage exchanges and encounters with other people and cultures.
In this context, the 24 apprentice musicians follow weekly violin practices with Joël Chouquet, music teacher and Chantal Renaud, former director of the Calanques school and now volunteer coach of Les Petits Violons.
The voluntary commitment of the children and their passion for instrumental practice allows them to create a real social, intergenerational and inter-community bond.
Participation in C Barré's creative projects gives access to large-scale musical projects in other territories and encourages encounters with other Marseilles schools and the Ensemble's professional artists.
In coproduction with the CIQ.
Supports and partners: La Logirem, ANRU, the City of Marseille, Ciq members, local companies, GMEM, the Marseille Opera, the Marseille Jazz Festival, the Théâtre du Centaure, the Parc National des Calanques, the Observatory des Quartiers Sud and the associations of the district.

RÉSIDENCE IN SITU - 2015/2016
As part of the "In Situ" programme set up by the Seine-Saint-Denis County Council, C Barré was welcomed in residence at the Pierre Brossolette College in Bondy to stage his show "El Niño".
This included 30 to 40 days of attendance spread evenly over the 2015/2016 school year, during which, in parallel with the preparation of our show, speakers from C Barré led the students of the 4th1 to create their own show. He is deeply connected with Federico García Lorca, author of all the texts of "El Niño", and with the values he still embodies today, including freedom of expression.
Students have all the skills and professions necessary to create a show, by investing themselves in writing booklets, creating a scenography, creating music, physical theatre, visual communication (newspaper, posters...), stage presence...
Their show, entitled La Barraca, named after a film by Jean Vigo shot partly in the canal de l'Ourcq in Bondy, was presented twice on May 27, 2016 at the Auditorium de Bondy as part of the Festival d'Île de France.
