With the actors of Theatre de la Ville
All the theatre conventions - lights and shades, machinery, slapstick comedy, theatre of imagination, all this dizzying kaleidoscope of scenes - are reflected in this performance like in a labyrinth of mirrors. The director’s work is striking. The performance is weaved out of elegant effects, powerful images, expressive gesticulation. Also striking is how the director uses the entire acting space. This is a dream theatre created right in front of us, where form and content become one. It is a true theatrical firework.
Les Echos
I believe this is precisely the play that marked the transition to the contemporary theatre in Europe. It is a momentous play as evidenced by the scandal that broke out as a result of its staging in Rome in 1921. This play is a tribute to theatre and at the same time it lays bare the profound conflict that exists between this form of art and the reality.
Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota
Brilliant! An astoundingly beautiful staging (...) Yves Collet’s sets and lights, Jefferson Lentbeye’s music, the costumes and make-ups - everything is stunning in this production. The spectators are keenly listening to every word spoken on stage and the actors’ voices unamplified by microphones sound lightly and clearly. The amazing sound tones create a polyphony. In the meantime, not a single sigh, a meaningful gesture or a word are lost. The combination of the unique directorial style, expressive physical presence and brilliant acting make the performance undated and highly imaginative. We are directly faced with the magic of theatre and the most complex ambivalence the human mind.
