Présentation du spectacle Final Cut

“Maternal madness dominated my childhood and teenage years — my father remained in the background, blurry, like his photography negatives which my mother couldn’t bring herself to throw away. Indeed, she had relocated him to the fringes, a ghost whom she had wanted to erase, down to his very name.”
This duo-monologue, full of images and songs, tells the story of a refusal to be broken. Political and domestic worlds intertwine – paranoia in Empires, paranoia in families. Nothing can silence this lively, well-researched and meticulous narrative.

Présentation de l'auteure Myriam Saduis

Myriam Saduis is a French stage director living in Brussels.  Ingmar Bergman entrusted her with the rights to A Matter of Soul,  which she adapted to the stage in 2008. In  2012, she created La nostalgie de l'avenir (Nostalgia for the future) inspired by Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, and led its adaptation and staging at the Théâtre Océan Nord. In 2015, Amor Mundi opened at the Théâtre95 in Cergy-Pontoise, a creation based on Hannah Arendt’s life, in cooperation with Valérie Battaglia. Myriam Saduis has been a professor at the IAD, Institut des Arts de Diffusion, and at Cours Florent in Brussels since 2012.


“[…] This is a troubling and poignant work of art, which Myriam Saduis develops with astonishing detachment, unexpected humour and fascinating historical and literary references. The artist has us hooked from the start thanks to her hypnotic, authoritative gaze, in which we can already glimpse the depths of an enigmatic childhood.”Catherine Makeree - Le Soir - 19/11/2018

“A big moment for theatre […] A clear-headed confession, without exhibitionism, on the art of becoming the master of your own pain.”Christian Jade - RTBF - 19/11/2018

“Final Cut reveals itself to be an encompassing reflection on the major issues of the 20th century, on the questions of building an identity, mixed-race heritage and decolonialisation. However, it is also a thriller full of twists”.Marie Baudet - La Libre - 20/11/2018
