Les Tombées de la Nuit on 8 March
International Women's Day

A String Section • Reckless Sleepers (UK)

This choreographic unbalancing act sees five elegant women wearing black performing with their instrument of choice – a saw – which they each use to cut apart their chair. Elegance and sophistication make way for the absurd when gravity takes over.

From a seemingly simple idea, the Reckless Sleepers company has created a performance with infinite possibilities where the chair becomes a symbol of fragile balance and insolence.

Reading of Letters of Women • Odette Simonneau (FR)

“One day, Colette Hélard gave me a copy of Letters of Women by Marcel Prévost to read. The book contains letters written in the early 20th century. I added a few to take us (almost) up to the present day, and every now and again I enjoy giving a public reading.”

Duration : 25 min per reading
Free, subject to availability


Be Claude • 1 Watt (FR)

This is a man washing a window. Except that he could actually be washing his soul. And because he throws himself fully into the task, he will soon be profoundly free, on the sidelines of the world and the things that form it, hanging in a perfect imbalance, while naturally connected to one of the greatest mysteries of the human constitution: his feminine side.
