Errare humanum est. En art, les erreurs font le style. Les machines en sont incapables, ne connaissant que le bug. D’une langue à une autre, nos défauts de prononciation alimentent les allitérations, sujets de nos improvisations. Nos accents tracent une ligne musicale de Auch à Stockholm traversant Les Lilas, longitude 2°25′14″ Est. D’Andromaque à La grande vadrouille, les serpents sifflent, la mouche moche s’envole, les rats tâtent du riz, Peter Piper picore des poivrons, elle vend des coquillages, les marins ont le mal de mer, les grosses cloches sonnent, y a pas d’hélice c’est là qu’est l’os…
Le spectacle s'intitule Défauts de prononciation, mais il y en eut tant, qu'un défaut, des défis !
