Calvin in Saint Gervais Church: “Clocks tell their stories”

Calvin is usually made responsible for a certain Genevan melancholy, for frustrations and for local conformity. Is this an excuse, simply false, or a fact? In this church-tower dispute the church clocks will have a say. Their hands are the pens which draw their ink from the scandals of our lives. Calvin and the theatre are said to go badly together – but that has to be seen.

Dates: 16 to 28 June 2009 (except 22 June)
Place and time: Geneva: Théâtre Saint-Gervais, Temple de Saint-Gervais, 5 rue du Temple
20.30 h except Thursday 19 h and Sunday 18 h
