We can not imagine a better way than drama to reconnect with living art Ten Commandments by Dorothy Dix. In a wonderful text written by Stephanie Jasmine, Julie Le Breton gave the best performance of her career. Alone on stage for an hour and a half, the actress – who made her solo debut here – reflects a woman looking back on her life on the eve of her 100th birthday.

This woman who paints joy on her face every morning, this woman who has everything to be happy, hides in the unfulfilled desires of her soul and the renunciation of eating her. She is married to a man who worships her until she is choked, the mother of children she does not love properly, because there are so many of them that she sees years pass without real control over his existence. She is only an image to those around her, she is far from the truth.

Imperial description

During a non-linear score, ignoring any timeline, this woman very often sends out an intimate voice that prefers to be quiet. Throughout her life she chose to follow the recipe for the pleasure of journalist Dorothy Dix, who published her advice in the American press in the first half of the 20th century.And Century. Set your mind to be happy; Make the most of your part Manual designed on denial, self-silence. In short, the user manual for facade pleasure.

Bathing barefoot in minimalist decor with stunning video projections of the beach (also signed by Stephanie Jasmine), Julie Le Breton imperialism in the role of this unnamed woman.

Her voice sometimes has a slow rhythm and a majestic tone that can last for centuries, sometimes the cheerful voices of a hopeful teenager. “I’m 10 years old, I’m 90 years old, I’m 40 years old …” Julie Le Breton’s talent as a brilliant performer, Denise Marlio, is enough to take us on a journey through time. This woman of all ages and despite the devastation of time burns with the same stubborn flame that she refuses to go out with.

To enrich this text with its beauty, Denise Marlio deliberately chose a staging that, while avoiding unnecessary distraction, leaves room for words in the economy, but for a subtle and wonderfully controlled interpretation of an actress. She entered the new soil to push the limits of art further.
