Alliance Française de Bombay presents the theatrical performance – Son nom de Venise dans Calcutta désert, presented by actress Maud Andrieux.

Based on the film by Marguerite Duras with the same title, this is the story of a love affair that takes place in India in the 30s, in an overpopulated city on the banks of the Ganges. Two days in this love story are presented — It is the season of the summer-monsoon. The woman, Anne-Marie Stretter, stands in the midst of it with a grace which engulfs everything, in unfailing silence, a grace which is porous and dangerous, dangerous also for some of them…

So, join us at AF Bombay and experience this heartwarming story through Maud’s exceptional adaptation!

Performance in French | Subtitled in English


Date & Time: Tuesday, 28 March | 6:30 pm

Venue: Alliance Française de Bombay (Theosophy Hall, 40 New Marine Lines, Churchgate)
