Le Salon is back! A theatre of food, conversation and exchange.

“Only Connect” is the theme

The ties that bind, those invisible filaments of hope that connect the key lines of the soul. In moments of inspired epiphany, we re-member who we really are, our common heritage, source and our birthright.

Life becomes joyous, not an ordeal. Lessons are learned, all is forgiven, and consciously we return to ‘Llila’ to play the cosmic game and to create, for we are here to create.

So alone or in a crowd, come play, come create, come connect. Bring your poems, your stories, your artwork, your easel, your guitar, your ideas and dreams. and share what REDEEMS you and sparks YOUR soul in a relaxed, unpretentious and informal setting.

Held at both regular and alternative venues, with different themes and events , Le Salon/Is-Salott, aims to revive the great tradition of the 18 and 19th century Italian and French open salons. An intimate and animated cafe on the move if you like, encouraging social interaction, and the meeting and exchange of ideas, concepts and artistic expression.

Invisible threads will also showcase 8  poems by Salonierre Miriam Calleja, interpreted by four actresses dressed in paper costumes by Bulgarian Fashion Designer and Paper Doll Artist, Petia Zasheva. Miriam’s poems speak of unrequited love, waiting and the pain of loss, sifting through the debris of relationships for meaning but also of moments in time simply captured; arresting tableaux vivants of impermanence.

WHO’s INVITED? Here at Le Salon, we believe, it is who you are that counts, not what you do. You don’t actually have to produce anything or fit into any category to be an artist. You are an artist by virtue of how you express yourself, by dint of who you ARE

“To touch the soul of another human being is to walk on holy ground” Stephen Covey

“Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer.” E.M. Forster
