Tartuffe d’après Tartuffe d’après Tartuffe d’après Molière
Conceived and performed by Guillaume Bailliart
One may have seen many Tartuffe… but never a Tartuffe as such… where an actor, in a solo act, plays all the parts, transforming this French classic into a tour de force.
Guillaume Bailliart literally spouts the play as to reveal the extraordinary energy of the language of Molière. In this mad venture, Bailliart is mainly interested in the excessive and hurtling words, in the ‘formal dictatorship of the verse’ as he likes to put it, an extremely restrainted style that allows nonetheless the most inventive of acts.
Overflowing with energy and breathtaking acting, Guillaume Bailliart revives these words of great strenghth and timeless meaning.
