FILLE DE MON COEUR

(Daughter of my Heart)

Welcome to The Writer’s Mark – A Company that celebrates the work of surrealist writers through the mediums of art and performance.

FILLE DE MON COEUR (Daughter of my Heart) explores the ‘essence’ of the famous idiosyncratic French writer Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) and his complicated relationship with French actress Colette Thomas. Thomas was one of several women who was part of Artaud’s ‘daughters of the heart.’ Thomas was drawn to Artaud, like a moth to a flame, vulnerable and yet completely engulfed by his methods of intense rehearsals.

This performance will be an emotive visceral immersive experience that explores through movement, poetry and multimedia; the last five years of Artaud’s life from Rodez Asylum to his final moments at the Ivry-sur-Seine. Artaud spent his life subjected to many horrors; unable to have his ideas for: cinema, theatre, art or radio fully realised in performance – and yet despite his suffering, psychosis and internment - he had an unwavering desire to continue living.

Expect a fusion of physical theatre, poetry, Shakespeare, mime and multimedia.
The human behind the stereotype – the raw response through movement and at times the quiet 'little celestial poet.'

*Please note, there will be no wheelchair access at the venue. Explores themes of mental health, psychosis and flashing imagery. This is not suitable for under 16s.
