THIS SHOW IS PRESENTED IN COLLABORATION WITH KLEINE CIE PRODUCTION

This autobiographical fiction tells the story in the form of a voyage into the author’s memory, her adolescence in French Indochina (present-day Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and part of south China that was colonised by France between 1887 and 1954). The decline of the French empire is the backdrop to this tale of passion between a 15-year-old girl and a man from north China. Actress Anaïs Pellin brings us fragments of the novel by Duras, the story of an ambiguous passion and a wrenching family destiny. Alex Mah’s musical score is interwoven with the author’s narrative, spoken by Anaïs Pellin, building a dialogue between her voice and the music in this theatrical work directed by Émilie Leclerc. 

"L’Amant" (The Lover) by French author Marguerite Duras was published in 1984 and won the Prix Goncourt that same year, and the Ritz-Paris-Hemingway award in 1986.
