    The Merde Factor, Stephen Clarke's stage adaptation of one of his best-selling "Merde" novels.


    As part of WICE’s 40th birthday celebrations, come along to this exclusive event for WICE members and their guests.


    Englishman Paul West (played by a stand-up comedian fresh from London) rants about France to the audience, and interacts with a series of comic characters – male, female, French and otherwise – played by one (pretty heroic) actress. Their antics are accompanied by a live musician who pitches in with ditties like "I need a euro, a euro is all I need",  "La Vie en Merde" (to replace "Rose" of course), and "Bonjour, is it moi you're looking for?" (with profound yet insincere apologies to Lionel Richie).


    The plot: Paul is penniless, living in a chambre de bonne above a neighbor with Tourette's syndrome, and about to be ripped off by his former boss. His only option: to get one of the few jobs for life left on the planet, as a French civil servant. Meanwhile he agrees to be a judge in a competition: "Has Paris Got Literary Talent?" (Answer: non).


    90 minutes of jokes, anecdotes, accents, songs and very bad poetry.


    This exclusive performance will start at 7:00pm and finish at 8:30pm.


    After the show there will be a question and answer session with Stephen Clarke, followed by a book signing.

    Belgian Beer by Neil T is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0Though traditionally a country focused on wine, France has a growing fascination with craft beer. And their neighbor to the north, Belgium, is in many ways the originator of craft beer. Whether you just want a better understanding of some of the world's most popular and polarizing beer, or are planning a trip to Belgium to attend one of their many beer festivals and want to be prepared, this evening will be packed full of useful information and tantalizing beers.


    This introduction to Belgian beer will cover:

    • The main styles of Belgian beers and their characteristics.
    • The difference between ales and lagers, and which category Belgian beers fall into.
    • The difference between Trappist beers and Abbey beers.
    • The differences between Walloon and Flemish beers of the same styles.
    • What you should expect to find "on tap" at most Belgian bars.
    • How beer is made.
    • The proper glass, and proper way to pour Belgian beer.
    • The Belgian Beer festivals, shops and bars worth visiting.
    • Last but not least: where to find your favorite Belgian beers here in Paris (Bars and shops).

    The tasting will span the full spectrum of flavors that Belgian beer has to offer. From bitter to sour, sharp to sweet, Belgian brewers make a beer for everyone - even many people who say "I don't like beer." Join us in exploring Belgian beer together, in a casual setting.  Prepare to be surprised by all the diverse flavors! Heavy hors d'oeuvres representing typical Belgian pub food will be served.


    WICE is 40 years young, and always evolving. This class is being offered as a part of our 40th Anniversary Year celebrations, and is intended to reflect the growing popularity of beer, globally and locally.


    About your guide: Amanda has a unique passion and insight into what makes Belgian beer so intriguing. She lived in Belgium for five years where she sought out beer shops and pubs, increasing her knowledge of beers, and attended several beer events a year, including Belgium's largest beer festival.

    As Charles De Gaulle once said "How can you govern a country which has two hundred and forty-six varieties of cheese?" And how can another country maintain a well-balanced and equanimous relationship with the Hexagon -- especially the often un-united United States?  Hence our round table objective: to try to clarify both the nature of each crucial decade in France from the last odd 40 years and to explore and discover the nature of the Franco-American relationship in each era.  Concise, pertinent film and textual materials will be used as the basis of our fascinating discussions.


    About the Instructor: John Dean, Professor Emeritus of MC University of Versailles, France,  is an American by birth, and a resident of France for over 40 years.  He is currently Program Co-Director, der Akademie für Lehrerfortbildung und Personalführung in Dillingen, DE. and was formerly an Executive Member of the US American Studies Association International Committee, a Chercheur Centre d'Histoire Culturelle des Sociétés Contemporaines, UVSQ.
