“My father unfolded the world map and showed us distant countries while telling us the history of our country”.
This is how Gérard Paugam became passionate about heritage and History : by discovering the world ! Aware of such heritage, he wondered how to best convey to future generations, and how to get the Youth History.
An acknowledgment : live shows, historical reconstitutions, audience participation to the shows are efficient and funny ways to teach and convey.
That said, Gérard Paugam founded Le Roi Uther. The association aims at boosting the patrimony and the history of a place. The 14th and the 15th centuries are his favourite times.
Le Roi Uther will be organising medieval shows !
A live history lesson will be provided to the audience. Each demo, each show will rely on proven facts.
Le Roi Uther brings together passionate, worldwide famous experts with various skills, reenactment companies, comedians, stuntmen, troubadours and craftsmen.
The challenge which is to modify the image of Middle Age, is a success. Each new show is highly expected by audiences who highly appreciate medieval live events.
“When in 2009, you came to me and borrow lavatories for your medieval event, I was picturing a local “fair” with people in costume. You talked with enormous passion, even ardour, as all managers who believe in their projects, do.
You came back and see me in the fall 2010 … Still with the same passion, so contagious, that I offered you my help.
There I lwas able to live the eventfrom the inside. Magical !”
