Nobody can doubt the extent of Pascal Rambert’s passion for actresses, and since the success of Clôture de l’amour he has revealed his talent for contrasting physical movement and words on stage. He displays his talent here in the context of a goodbye ceremony to which the actress invites those who admire her in order to say goodbye and display her talent with her customary abnegation and for the last time. Rambert explores the duality that is an inherent feature of the work of all actors by giving creative power to the actress, and Marina Hands is the actress who possesses the greatness and humility that are necessary in order to successfully portray her character. He also adds an elegant choral element to accentuate the performance, which relies on no other theatric support and with her presence being the only means of reaching out to her audience. This play revives the fascination that audiences feel for the stars of the stage, those actresses who, even in death, are never forgotten.
