French Theatre play with English subtitles, played by Maud Andrieux
Based on a novel by Marguerite Duras: Marguerite Duras was born on April 4, 1914 in Gia Dinh, a suburb of Saigon, in colonial French Indochina. She lived there until the age of 18 and completed her baccalaureat (diploma) in philosophy at Lycée Chasseloup Laubat.
Maud Andrieux- My adaptation expresses the project of a lifetime, determined to fight against the injustice of the colonies. Duras, a teenager, also experiences love with a young Chinese boy. Inspired by the Indochinese set-up until the dwelling, it is truly an erotic and a sensual discovery filled with her lifelong experiences. The audience emerges into those colonies of France, travel to the very heart of the autobiography of Duras. They are truly fascinated by the overwhelming musicals of the text.
Marco Gomes Music Composition -
For the project dedicated to Marguerite Duras, my thought is to offer a journey to the heat of the authors writing. The idea is to create a poetic and profound ambiance, through the emotion of the words, silence and intuition. The electronic and organic sounds combined with the voice of the performer gives a contemporary and a timeless dimension to the language, to the phrase and to the extreme sensitivity of the works.
