Through the images of its superb machinery, now gone, and its deserted architecture, it is the memory of an Italian-style theater that lives on today. Through them, we can also imagine the work of those who worked in the shadows and without whom the show could not have existed.

    Fascinated by the beauty of its frameworks, the obsolescence of the materials, the magic of these mechanisms made of ropes, pulleys, capstans and narrow gangways as on an antique three-masted ship, André Soupart invites us to wander on the grill, under the stage and in the wings and to discover a universe unknown to the spectators.
