First Paris performance of the Shuman Show on Saturday May 6th!


On Saturday May 6th at 8:30pm, the Macareux in Paris will be hosting the first Paris performance of the Invisible Bordeaux live spin-off, the Shuman Show!

Loyal readers will be familiar with the Shuman Show, a words-and-music extravaganza that has been developed around a subject covered on the blog: Mort Shuman. The 75-minute show provides samples of the music Shuman wrote throughout his career, interspersed with a number of anecdotes that not only connect to tell the full story, but add extra layers of understanding to the songs themselves. Above all, the Shuman Show is great fun.

So, if you live in Paris or can find some way of getting there, then make sure you're at the Macareux on May 6th. Alternatively, if you have friends or acquaintances in the city, urge them to come along!

And, after a number of performances in and around Bordeaux, it is apt that Paris should be the next stop for the Shuman Show, given Mort Shuman's longstanding love affair with the city. To complete the picture, I now need to set up dates in Shuman's other "hometowns", London and New York! To be continued!...

Here is everything you need to know about the Paris date:
> Saturday May 6th 2017 at 8:30pm, Le Macareux, rue du Croissant, Paris 2e.
> Admission: €10 on the night (free for children).
> Please register your attendance via the Googleform here.  
> Full introduction to the Shuman Show available here.

Bordeaux life through a lens: my favourite local Instagram accounts


Like many blogs, Invisible Bordeaux has also developed its presence on social media channels including Twitter, Facebook and Youtube. And one of the essential outlets used to promote blog items and share random pictures as and when the opportunities arise is Instagram.  

There are many talented people feeding Instagram, and some happen to be based in Bordeaux. I thought I would share links through to a few of my personal favourite accounts: these are the Instagram people whose publications I look forward to, and whose camera (or smartphone) lenses never fail to capture the city from an unusual or unexpected perspective. If you want to see pictures of the Miroir d’Eau and Place de la Bourse, there are plenty of sources, but if you want to view Bordeaux differently, check out these accounts:

It is difficult to pack more depth and perspective into Instagram posts than Amélie seems to manage. She captures a timeless vision of Bordeaux with people occasionally passing through. She also has a great eye for unusual exteriors and enjoys playing with reflections.

Eric’s territory branches out beyond Bordeaux to include le Médoc, Arcachon Bay and beyond. His work is 100% smartphone photography and features some recurring characters: a little toy superhero who ends up in various situations, and Eric himself, invariably captured mid-jump.

Jean-Christophe mixes and matches techniques and styles, and is at his best in urbex settings surrounded by skateboarders, cyclists and parkour enthusiasts. His pictures are as full of life as they are varied.

This account, led by Bordeaux Walking Tours owner Hela, has developed nicely over recent months. The pictures uncover surprising and unexpected spots throughout the city, and often come with interesting, informative added-value captions.

Another account fed by a tour guide, Caroline, and another account that is not afraid to go off the beaten track. The pictures are so well-balanced they could almost be oil paintings.

University lecturer Lesley provides a delightful take on her adopted home city. Many of her pictures capture early-morning/early-evening scenes from her commute, providing an accurate portrayal of what it is really like to live and work in Bordeaux.

Greg’s feed features a lot of the city’s essential landmarks, always in style and often with a surprising twist. He also ventures further afield and clearly has a lot of fun playing with colour and light.

Gilles is an accomplished photographer. Although not the most prolific contributor on Instagram, what he shares is charming and often unusual. He has an eye for hidden details and will also go looking for angles which most people would never think of!
