Turbulences et petits détails de Denise Bonal - Thursday, 18th June


Mise en scène: Yasmina Vally

Avec: Les ateliers Tamise en Scène

Lieu: Steiner Theatre, 35 Park Road NW1 6XT

Join us to watch the play in French : Book here



"C'est un morceau de noce qui se déroule à la campagne, avec des invités qui se croisent, se cherchent ou se retrouvent, traversés par cette fièvre, mi-ardeur, mi-tourment, qui agite les coeurs lors des mariages. Sorte de panorama où se mêlent et se démêlent des souvenirs, des questionnements et des désirs... Il y a des Commères, témoins des jours anciens... Il y a des Pucelles qui s'interrogent sur la vie... Il y a des Nonchalants qui portent de lourds passés... Il y a des Femmes qui ont été abandonnées et qui pleurent encore... Et d'autres qui ne cessent pas d'aimer leurs infidèles... Et d'autres encore qui veulent un enfant tout de suite... Il y a comme des rêves qui traversent l'espace, marchant de biais comme des chiens de chasse... Il y a des histoires qui ne diront jamais l'énigme qui les habite..."

-- Denise Bonal, à propos de la pièce.
