Carte Blanche at Université Côte d'Azur.
Directed by Gwendoline Destrema.
In this inverted retelling of the myth, Eurydice, a contemporary heroine, crosses the earth's crust to find her lover in the Underworld. She encounters corpses and creatures that make her journey a veritable voyage of initiation.
Blending comic, burlesque, poetic and tragic registers, this third creation by the Compagnie de l'Eau qui Dort offers the spectator an intense and contrasting emotional experience.
L'Eau qui Dort is a company founded in June 2016.
The company's creation is based on a certainty: fiction is powerful.
Fiction changes the world, changing our consciousness and our outlook.
We talk about what sleeps under the water, the unconscious truths slipped into our myths and tales.
