The Bird Syndrome
at Théâtre Montansier  

Through this heartbreaking closed-door drama, directors Sara Giraudeau and Renaud Meyer take us into the story of a woman kept prisoner in an unwelcoming apartment, by a cold and tough man. Her only escape? Her imagination and madness, which allow her to believe she can be a bird, and fly away from this cage. A play that is both cruel and wonderfully poetic.

Mata Hari, Temporary Title
 at the Bouffon Théâtre

She was labeled as a spy, but she was much more than that. In this one-woman show, Olivia Algazi portrays Mata Hari, inviting us to (re)discover the story of this 20th-century icon. From the woman who dreams of freedom, of dance, and of an international career. We witness her triumphs and her falls. A powerful piece about one of the most remarkable figures of her time.

Orpheus and Eurydice meet on a train platform and fall madly in love. But of course, nothing ever goes so smoothly. In a tragic accident, Eurydice loses her life. A certain Mr. Henri then offers Orpheus the chance to reunite with his love at the gates of death. A story of love, life, and destiny that Jean Anouilh contemplates with daring modernity.
