Le Cahier noir [The Black Book] (Actes Sud editions) is the story of a young man seeking perfection. A Rimbaldien project, a diary written at the age of 17… Olivier Py lays down his most intimate fantasies and art brut drawings. Thirty-five years later, the great author and stage director (who is now the director of the Festival d’Avignon), wishes to adapt this founding text, that mixes the obsessional themes of his writing (sexuality and faith).
Like a “poor” theatre, on a stripped stage, with three actors that will let us hear all the humming of his language, his lyricism and his humour too.
