Élise Vigier will be present in the programming of the Festival d’Avignon 2022 with the play, Anaïs Nin au mirror by Agnès Desarthe. A production of Les Lucioles Rennes, La Comédie de Caen CDN de Normandie. A meeting with the public is scheduled for Tuesday 23 November at 7:30 p.m.
In a theater, actresses rehearse music hall numbers. They are preparing a show around Anaïs Nin. They wonder about this woman writer. She is free, intrepid, provocative, exhibitionist and they have only one hatred: to start a dialogue with her. And the magic operates, Anaïs is there. It invades the space of the stage, is embodied in each of the actors and redistributes the cards of the present, of reality, of desire and of attachments. Élise Vigier suggests that we both feel the author’s concern and let ourselves be taken in by this comedy resulting from chaos. A way of being in front of the mirror that the past never ceases to hold out to us.
Actress and director, Élise Vigier trained at the École du Théâtre national de Bretagne. In 1994, with her promotion, she created the Les Lucioles collective. Since 2015, alongside Marcial Di Fonzo Bo, Elise Vigier has been an associate artist at the direction of the Comédie de Caen CDN de Normandie and from 2017 to 2019, associate artist at the Maison des Arts de Créteil.
