Synopsis : It all starts with a dialogue…Giacometti is late. Alice Bellony waits for him at a café around the corner from her studio, rue Hippolyte-Maindron. As he arrives three hours later, Alice is getting ready to leave. “Were you leaving without me?” he asked in surprise. “Yes,” I answered, dryly. This dialogue is an excerpt from Alice Bellony’s book Une soirée avec Giacometti, and serves as the starting point to this theatrical journey. The performance was set into music by Inès Halimi and offers painting the starring role. All throughout, the audience is led into an artistic universe of drawing, portraits, travels and life; it wraps us in Emile Zola and Jean Cocteau’s words, and Cézanne and Picasso’s presence. On stage, visual artist Dessa’s vibrant works enlighten Giacometti’s prose, a man still remembered as “the word lover.”
