Remembering beautiful, first and last things

04 april 2020 — 06:00 pm | Grande salle

La première (dernière) fois

Denis Maillefer

This show will be the last one played at La Comédie, Boulevard des Philosophes.
In this context, several events will take place. The full programme will be announced at a later date.


Actors evoke their first times. The show is completely improvised. The acting, as well as the lights and sound. This is the first time they will say the last words that will be spoken on the stage of La Comédie at Boulevard des Philosophes.

“We want(ed) to say goodbye. Farewell and so long! Try and explain where we came from and where we’re going. How the first words sounded and how to speak the last ones. How to be together on a stage. We want to speak to the living and the ghosts, tell both that they’re welcome to follow us, or the other way round. We’ll have to remember our first times on this stage and everywhere else. Look at the walls and our hearts and keep everything. Or forget everything and remember only that which has no words.” NKDM
