French musician Francois Audrain presents the result of his work with the pupils of Broughton High School in ‘Edimbourg, la Ville à l’Envers’ at the Institut francais d’Ecosse on Saturday 15 December 2012 at4.00 pm.

After touring in 6 countries (Quebec, Germany, Czech Republic, Turkey, China and Vietnam) with his project ‘Les Retours de l’Ecole’ (On the way back from School), French composer and musician François Audrain launches in Edinburgh a new series of collaboration with foreign schools: ‘La Ville à l’Envers’ (The City inside out).

In collaboration with Broughton High School Audrain worked with pupils studying Advanced Higher French to design a video for his song Nuit étrange (Strange Night). Moving away from the usual postcard image, the participating pupils used their smartphones and pocket cams to film their city as they see and experience it in their daily life. The video will be screened as part of Audrain’s electro-rock performance ‘Edimbourg, la Ville à l’Envers’.

‘Edimbourg, la Ville à l’Envers’ will be performed in France next February as part of the Travelling Film Festival in Rennes (Brittany) which will dedicate its 2013 edition (19-26 February) to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
