« L’ENFANT », is an invitation to experience from within Maurice Maeterlinck’s play « La Mort de Tintagiles », through an immersive staging Labyrinthine spaces, ephemeral scenographies, animated figures, sound vibrations, are elements that immerse us in a world of continuous uprising, which reflects the inner reality of Ygraine, inviting the spectator to follow the character’s initiatory route.  Ygraine’s young brother Tintagiles is unexpectedly back on the devastated island and his return arouses both joy and anxiety. Responding to the threat of an invisible soul-devourer queen, Ygraine engages in a rebellion. Overthrowing the established order, breaking down borders, she finally penetrates a world that the living cannot enter, eager to catch a glimpse of the infinite realm of shadows. 

“I wish I could study all that remains unformulated in life, all that has no expression in death and in life, all that seeks a voice in a heart.”
Maeterlinck – Excerpt from Confession de poète.
