PLAY “FROM CAMILLE TO CLAUDEL...”

Friday 9th August at 8:00 pm.
De Camille a Claudel
The “Compagnie du souffle 14” shows a musical reading based on Camille Claudel’s correspondence.

Describe Camille Claudel mean to tell her excess, her intransigence and her inability to compromise, in daily work and in social life. It’s a life lived for and through the art, with a rage for creativity which backfire on the pieces of art and the genius of the artist at the end.

The play area suggests a workshop-battlefield, where the characters come alive, recount Camille Claudel with their voices and also with the sounds: those of the workshop and the bass.

With Lorena Felei  et Filipe Monteiro, bassist.

Price : 10€ ; Reduced : 5€.

Time : 1 hour.
