Émilie ne sera plus jamais cueillie par l’anémone by Michel Garneau, Monday, September 26, 8 p.m.
A reading of the play by the Quebec author Michel Garneau inspired by the life of Emily Dickinson, by the Les p’tits Vertiges company.
On stage, two women in a garden. Two sisters. Two lovers of life who are completely different but who share the same quest: to grasp the world in its entirety and live to the full the “vertiginous right to be human”. Both are ready, in their own ways, to take “all the risks of desire”. Emily Dickinson lived at the time of Gone with the Wind. But for us yesterday and today are one and the same, and the only time is that of the theatre. Poetry. A delightful text, both profound and humorous, by Michel Garneau. For the time of a dizzy turn, a children’s dance or a mad waltz.
Company: Les p’tits Vertiges
Actors: Marie Le Galès and Susanne Schmidt
