When Ambre Kahan decided to read Goliarda Sapienza’s book, she did so in one sitting, almost without blinking an eye. She then set about meeting the challenge of staging L’Art de la joie, a saga that spans the 20th century, in which Modesta, a wife, mother, lover, and friend passionate about freedom pushes life – her life – to the limits, with panache and joy. Rather than adapt the novel in its entirety, Ambre Kahan kept the turmoil, disarray, and exuberance that flow from the narrative without simplifying it, and let the noise and fury burst forth. Thirteen performers accompany Modesta, a woman who embraces others as much as she embraces life. The show will be performed in two parts: the first this season and the full version in spring 2025.
