The result of research and improvisation, “Ionesco Suite - EUGÈNE IONESCO ” is a navigation through the heart of Eugène Ionesco's most striking obsessions: the difficulty of being, the manifestation of power and domination – emotional or intellectual, the arbitrariness of language and the fundamental impossibility of communication. An ode to the violence of his humour that goes back to the origins, plunging into the heart of the texts that opened the roads to the Absurd. “The Bald Soprano” and “The Lesson”, but also others, largely unknown, such as “Jack, or The Submission” or “Delirium for Two”.

“Irresistible actors and an exhilarating show!” (TÉLÉRAMA)
