“ Ceci est si intime
et secret
notre imagination
si fantaisiste
qui pourrait savoir
qui devrait faire
quoi quand pourquoi
et comment ? ”

Kâmasûtra: an art of loving?

How does this “little book” overflowing with poetry, suspense, humor and irony manage to question our own relationship to eroticism, sexuality and love today?

For this project, I wanted to give voice to the female figure. To venture into the realm of the impossible to express the totality of pleasure!
On stage, two women who delight in playing a key role in this epic of desire, come to debate and grapple.

With mischief, with ardor, they seize upon these “threads of desire”, questioning and shaking up the clichés that often surround the representations we all have of the Kâmasûtra.

What if interpreting this text*, which uses language to teach a knowledge of pleasure while seeking to channel the all-consuming fire (Agni) of passion (Râga), were “a parodic, theatrical performance?

Lara Bruhl

« The Kâmasûtra (…) is perhaps the last encounter with a grammar of desire, combined with the practical idea of a sensual, theatrical existence, lived through formulas, ruses, syllogisms, recipes or various techniques, and poems… ».
