Theater Time - G@tto recommends...

4 women, 4 generations, 4 explosive characters, 4 destinies...
"Les Chagrins Blancs"

Written and performed by:

Alexandra Galibert, Barbara Grau, Caroline Sahuquet, Stéphanie Colonna,

and directed by:

Justine Heynemann.
[You can hear their interviews by clicking on each pic].

In a luxurious residence, a young woman loses herself, confronted to her anguish and
the ghosts of the past when she is visited by her mother, her grandmother and her

[Click on the pic and listen to Justine talking about her work and watch at some excerpts from the play].

"Of course I am 'privileged'. I live in a mansion, I have a nice car... what did I say? two, I have two cars...
a scooter - just in case. Not to mention the farmhouse in Provence, where I never go... I hate crickets!
But me, who am I?
I have no merit, no legitimacy, I am overwhelmed by the talent of my mother, the
reputation of my
grandmother and the dough of my great grandmother!"

Cute Spiders are strutting out in Paris...

Over 40.000 known species worldwide,
5.700 in Europe and around the Mediterranean basin,
1.600 in France... and all different.

The predatory behavior of the spider gives him bad press. Yet the properties of its silk
thread, of its venom, as well as its voracious appetite for many insects make the spider
a valuable ally for the human race.
Spiders are therefore the subject of numerous scientific studies, because they are still
from having revealed all their secrets.

Follow this Parisian arachnid and don't miss the 'Au Fil des Araignées' exhibit,
opening today at the Musée National d'Histoire Naturelle

Musée National d'Histoire Naturelle - Grande Galerie de l'Evolution
36, rue Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire - Paris V

More spiders, now?
