SIMONE BARBES OU LA VERTU
“Simone Barbès is a character with no fear or
reserve – she’s quirky and excessive. Her verve
is in the same vein as characters from popular
cinema like Arletty. Here, in continuous time,
she goes through three nocturnal situations: her
work, an outing to a night club and her ‘escorted’
journey home. Simone Barbès’ moves are pure
theatre, or hysteria: that is her distance. At no
point is there any spirit of vengeance, nastiness
or feminist morality at all. Quite the opposite
– Simone is a very emancipated, modern
character a kind of Saint of her day.”
