Fêtes et manifestations

07 April 2023

THEATER for adults -
A story of love, marriage, a beautiful girl, a charming prince, the obstacles that the two loved ones encounter, and a happy ending?

But it is also about the Haitian tradition, about the country of birth that one leaves, and about the spells that one must use to love the new country.

Célimène, an orphan, lives with her younger brother Mo. As a peasant's daughter, she knows all the secrets of the rivers, plants and animals. Life goes on as usual until Zaken comes along and asks her to marry him. She leaves her native village to follow her husband. Célimène has many adventures there, and also some surprises. In addition, Zaken has a mysterious relationship with Liya, a phenomenal anaconda.
To survive, Célimène learns to fight and to invent hope. She discovers what exile is: changing countries, changing skin without disappearing.

A proposal from the Théâtre du Beauvaisis as part of its "Itinérance en Pays de l'Oise" tour

Edwige Danticat/Philip Boulay - Duration: 1 hour
