Titre: Reading: Patrice Chéreau, Coma
Lieu: FIAF, Florence Gould Hall
Description: Renowned French director and actor Patrice Chéreau performs in a stage reading of Pierre Guyotat’s highly lauded work Coma.
Winner of the 2006 Prix Décembre, one of the foremost literary prizes in France, Coma is a deeply moving, vivid portrayal of the author’s artistic and spiritual crisis in the 1980s. A striking, poetic performance by Chéreau who completely embodies Guyotat’s painful and moving words on life, death, and the struggle to create.
“In this extreme text, as if tearing every bodily fibre, Patrice Chéreau, all tensed nerves and muscles, brings to life a triumphant and moving existence.”—L’humanité
