Phèdre, by Patrice Chéreau (140’)
Patrice Chéreau unveils his Phaedra in the stark space of the Ateliers Berthier with its towering stone walls. His interpretation of Racine’s tragedy of desire and death paints the portrait of a woman physically and spiritually torn apart by a forbidden love. Dominique Blanc is this woman lost, distraught, a living disgrace transcending all reason and morality, a flesh and blood incarnation of the enigma of female desire.
