A theatre performance in French, Pueblo is the third adaptation of a text by Ascanio Celestini by actor David Murgia. Accompanied by the musician Philippe Orivel.
It is the story of a tramp who does not beg and an eight-year-old gypsy who smokes, the story of a barkeeper who earns her living with slot machines, of an African and a handful of other people whose names are not known. This is the story of a rainy day. Their links? This small town all that is more common. But also the relationships between all the people who inhabit it… People who are beautiful in their simplicity, endearing, generous, flamboyant, who continually expect something prodigious from life. With irony and impertinence, humor and tenderness. A powerful and moving summary of humanity.
Free entry to all public – from 12 years old.
Tuesday 19 July 2022, at 21:30, Fort Antoine, organised by the Department of Cultural Affairs.

Portrait of Ludmilla as Nina Simone
In this original creation by David Lescot, Ludmilla Dabo brings to life for us the great Nina Simone, legend of the blues and emblematic figure of Afro-American culture, engaged in the fight for civil rights in the United States.
On stage, it is Ludmilla Dabo who slips into the skin of the famous singer. Accompanied on the guitar by author and director David Lescot, the actress gives body and voice to an interview-portrait with virtuosity and generosity, going through the major events in Nina Simone’s destiny and shedding light on aspects of her own life. She makes us laugh, moves us and her beautiful voice makes us travel. A vibrant tribute to one of the greatest artists of the second half of the 20th century, Portrait of Ludmilla as Nina Simone brings to life the soul of an extraordinary woman.
Performance is in French. Freen entry, Friday 22 July 2022, at 21:30 pm at Fort Antoine Theatre, organised by the Department of Cultural Affairs.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN – L’EXHIBITION[NISTE] – CHAPTER II
A major summer event from the Grimaldi Forum Monaco is dedicated to the work and imagination of Christian Louboutin, a footwear designer and key figure in the fashion industry who has drawn much of his inspiration from the Principality.
The set design encompasses 2,000 m² and unveils previously unseen works tied to the designer’s Monegasque inspirations as well as new collaborations, including a unique project being developed with British artist Allen Jones.
Far from a classic retrospective, the exhibition path was designed as a joyful odyssey through three decades of abundant creativity infused with curiosity for all cultures and arts.
While the shoes will take pride of place, with a selection of unique pieces, the designer especially wanted to pay tribute to those who inspire him and make him dream.
The exhibition will close in August 28, 2022.
The title of the exhibition clearly circumscribes a geography, that of the Côte-d’Azur to Bordighera, in Italy, which Helmut Newton photographed from the 1960s until his death in the early 2000s. “A Riviera” is thus a pretext to explore the work of a major photographer of the 20th century in a different way, through now famous images, like others rarely presented to the public.
At Villa Sauber until 13.11.2022.
