Between mystery and illumination, Georges Lavaudant takes us on a voyage into the captivating world of surrealist poet Stanislas Rodanski,
A man with a hypnotic presence, a woman-chimera who could have stepped out of an Alfred Hitchcock film, the enigma of poetry which becomes a character in its own right… Being immersed in Le Rosaire des Voluptés Epineuses is like entering a space outside of time. In a fantastical land where life and death swap masks, as do light and dark, pain and pleasure, fantasy and reality.
There is something intriguing about Stanislas Rodanski’s chiaroscuro world. The Lyon-based poet (1927-1981) spent half his life in psychiatric hospitals. Unjustly overlooked, this artist, with his rare and unusual writing style, left behind a work shrouded in a supernatural glow. With his bewitchingly beautiful set, Georges Lavaudant recreates this work in all its hidden depths. Set in the dreamlike intimacy of a dinner with a funereal air, this song in search of a lost paradise emerges like a final sanctuary under the stagelights.
