Jonathan Capdevielle, Gisèle Vienne’s fetish actor for her performances adapts the police inquiry by Georges Bernanos, Un Crime, for the stage. He picks apart the particularities of French territories and dissects the frank speech and traditions of the villagers. It is the human condition that is observed with empathy, tenderness, and dark humor. At the heart of the plot, the "priest of Mégère", a newcomer dressed in the vestments of God, who acts out against the Catholic religion. In this world of strangeness and dread, in a Bernanos-style chaos, Jonathan Capdevielle and his actors play with the multiplicity of the roles, voices, and sound spaces with the support of IRCAM, to blur the lines between reality, dreams, and nightmares.
