L’Aventure Invisible. Touring theatre production 2021-22

Film projections from Magic Mirror and Confessions to the Mirror

to appear in:


at theatre de Gennevilliers, Paris in the program of festival d’automne.

The play premiered in French with the title L’Aventure Invisible at T2G Théâtre de Gennevilliers in Paris as part of Festival d’Automne in October 2020. It is based on interviews with three people: An American brain scientist who experienced a stroke and was able to study the collapse of her own brain from the inside. At the age of 37, she lost all her memories and was forced to re-invent her whole personality from scratch. A bookseller from Paris, was born with a genetic disease that made his face deformed. Through experimental surgery, he was able to receive the world’s first full facial transplantation.And an experimental filmmaker became obsessed with the mysterious photography of iconic queer artist Claude Cahún. Through elaborate cinematic reconstructions of Cahún’s photos, the filmmaker opens up a portal to the past.

The invisible adventure is partly based on interviews with brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor, facial transplantation patient Jérôme Hamon and artist Sarah Pucill.
