Le Chagrin

Stage writing Les Hommes Approximatifs
Concept Caroline Guiela Nguyen
with Dan Artus, Caroline Cano, Chloé Catrin, Mehdi Limam, Violette Garo-Brunel

In a hotchpotch half way between the doll house and the curiosity shop, four characters try to cope with grief. They have to organise the funeral of the father, and they have to bury childhood and innocence together with him. Without forgetting to reinvent themselves, in the "aftermath". With Chagrin, Caroline Guiela Nguyen invites us to drift to an unusual world, where chronology is disrupted, where words are missing, where we play again what we know to be over. A watermark world to capture the thickness of emotions, the depth of emptiness and the comeback of the full. A place where something, paradoxically, is being reborn. Between a tear and a laugh.
