La Visite – A young mother receives a visit from her husband’s distant family. Having to face them on her own, she launches into a monologue that dismantles the myth of perfect happiness stemming from some kind of miracle. Gradually sliding into a stream of consciousness about the maternal instinct, she speaks of science and the life of animals and ends up on the verge of implosion – a woman lost and alone beneath the gaze of society and no longer able to play the role expected of her. It will be performed for the first time in January 2020 in Châteauvallon and then transfer to the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris in February and March 2020.

Les Filles de nos filles – Philippe, a successful photographer, is exhibiting a series of female portraits taken in his youth. At the opening, a mysterious woman appears with two children and prompts Philippe to flee and take refuge in his hotel room. Who is this woman? What place does she occupy in the photographer’s oeuvre? What is she after?
