Letters From Ville-Evrard

“Summer 1994

The Theatre and its Double.

First theoretical essay about read theatre.

Scribbled pages, boxed paragraphs, highlighted sentences, I discover Artaud: I discover theatre. Another theatre.

 

Summer 2005

The company Vertical Détour settles into a residency in the Ville-Evrard psychiatric hospital. An abandoned building is temporarily lent to us. The Tramontane wing. Artaud used to live here in this wing, after Saint-Anne, before Rodez.

At the very climax of his disease, he wrote, that was his life.

We decided to have these letters heard. To have his laugh heard, his suffering, his outrageousness and his shout addressed to the heavens.”
