Les voyages de l'écoute

After giving a voice to "La Muette" based on a tale by the Iranian Chahdortt Djavann, Florence Baschet turns towards Virginia Woolf for her new creation.


The experimental novel The Waves (1931) erases the lines between prose and poetry, giving body to a stream-of-consciousness based on six voices and a mute hero, object of everyone's attention.
