A room to cool off

AMSD 2015

Some twenty years ago, Gaëlle Bourges spent long periods in the ‘Lady of the Unicorn’ room, because it was air-conditioned and that summer the heat in Paris was unbearable – she lived in a studio whose only window overlooked a crowded pedestrian street, a stone’s throw from the Musée de Cluny.
It is this experience of “refreshing contemplation” that she would like to offer visitors, in the company of two of the performers from A mon seul désir – the lion (Agnès Butet) and the unicorn (Alice Roland) – accompanied by a story whispered in your ear thanks to an audioguide that will also play music.
