Images for the adaptation to the Theatre, by Benjamin Lazar, of the Chants de Maldoror by Lautréamont.

After Heptameron, second collaboration with Benjamin Lazar for his next show 'Maldoror', based on the work of Lautréamont, for which he invites me to produce and screen images.
Mysterious, untamed, burning and multiple, the work of the Comte de Lautréamont was first of all the revolt of a young man seated at his piano in a Parisian hotel room in the middle of the 19th century. Starting from this initial image, Benjamin Lazar embarks, in words and music, “to meet the character of Maldoror and the world he inhabits”, to re-enchant the famous Chants de Maldoror.
