This is an original vintage press photo, not a reproduction or digital copy. Happening that nearly didn't happen..... : The Festival of Free Expression has been the talk of the Cote d'Azur. Planned to take place at St. Tropez at the famous Papagayo it was promptly banned by the Mayor, M. Lescudier who said, "It's the tourists who pay but the Tropeziens who vote. I do not want that pigstye in my house". Cause of the horrified outory was the two-part entertainment of psychedelic nature in the shape of "The Soft Machine" accompanying The Sensual Laboratory of Mark Boyle in some erotic diversion and the notorious play by Picasso "Desire Caught by the Tail" which he wrote in 1941 which has been described as a deliberate staging of obsenity for obsenity's sake. A number of artists and eriters such as Prevert, Nadeau and Ionesco protested against the St.Tropes ban. The Free Expression Group was forced to move into a circus tent at Cogolin-Plage about 6 miles outside St.Tropez. Yet the outory continue~ Archbishop of Draguinan threatened not to con~~rate a new chapel at nearby Gassin unless the play was taken off. Nevertheless the play went on with The Soft Machine to soften up the audience . This group has achieved a great following and is in great demand. Our pictures show how the happening and the Picasso play managed to make their impact in the South of France. Photo shows freaking out to Soft Machine music and light affects before the second part of the programme left, actress Marine Cabanetos who plays the tarte in "Desire Caught by the Tail".Photo measures 10.25 x 8 inches.
