Who tire of seeing a comedy of Marivaux such as The Double Inconstancy ? It is too wonderful, Marivaux. It is very brilliant and very cruel, it is funny, it is emotional, it is written in a language, shining, a tongue of the Eighteenth century, but which seems to us of a fresh and completely contemporary. It is touched. It includes all of the complexity of people, contradictions of the hearts, of the harsh class differences. You understand, you’re moved, you laugh. And it tastes the way in which the actors play, it is curious nuances of interpretation made by the director as the actors.

The space is clever: a soil that smells of humus, on which is planted a high stage of wood enclosed by a wall of vegetation. A simple device, and harmonious, Alain Lagarde, enhanced lights Bertrand Couderc. Two peasants love of tender love. Arlequin and Silvia. But the prince, crossing the young woman, took a fancy to marry her. He did remove it. It will involve Flaminia, the daughter of an officer of the Court and his confidante, for she separates the lovebirds… sister, Lisette, is teaming up with the party.

“Only think of to destroy the love of Silvia for Harlequin”, pounds Flaminia. The camp of power, and of adults is a dreadful cruelty and manipulates easily the poor children. In a version slightly tight, Philippe Calvario, which is a Trivelin end and nuanced, believes that it is necessary to add effects such as paintings, music, etc .. It does not serves to anything. The Harlequin Guillaume Sat is compelling in his sincerity and his awkwardness, and then in its wake, and the Silvia of Maud Forget is a delicacy ideal. Poisonous and more vulnerable to love than she would like, the pungent Flaminia Sophie Tellier enchants us. The prince is played by an artist who is also a countertenor, Luc-Emmanuel Betton, who has a presence of emotion and tact. Perched on huge heels, Alexiane Torres, already very great, brought with it an imbalance useless. Still an effect too. Still, one listens, charmed, the comedy fierce and irresistible.
