Exposition temporaire

 

FROM 13 MARCH TO 28 JUNE 2020

EXTENDED UNTIL 30 SEPTEMBER

 

For its second temporary exhibition, Chaplin’s World invites you to discover the fascinating musical universe of Charlie Chaplin under a new spotlight.

It promises to be a highly emotional moment for all the family.

 

CHAPLIN’S RELATIONSHIP WITH MUSIC

Charlie Chaplin learned to play music by ear when he was a teenager. At the age of twentyfive, he switched from music hall to cinema and went on to invent the character of The Tramp, boosting the art of mime and endowing his character with a musical dimension that made him both comical and poetic: a dancing body, in tune with the rhythm of the images.

With the arrival of the ‘talkies’ in 1927, Chaplin seized the opportunity to control his film music. From then on, he added composition to his already considerable skills, writing the scores for all his subsequent films and adding music to the silent films he had already made. He chose not to endow The Tramp with speech, preferring to preserve the character’s whimsical, poetic nature, and heightening the comedy through an interplay of sound effects and music.

Featuring a variety of film clips, photographs, artworks, rare documents and interactive displays, this exhibition is an immersive experience suitable for all audiences that sheds new light on the life and work of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.
