Opening novembre 2017

Théâtre Romain Rolland, scène conventionnée de Villejuif


« It is not enough to talk to be well, you need to share. » Boris Cyrulnik

Alone on stage, Céline Milliat Baumgartner interprates the autobiographical novel she wrote.

On june the 19th 1985, at 3.30 am, a car gets off the road at the entrance of the tunnel of Saint-Germain-en laye and sets on fire on the roadside. Firemen find inside two burned bodies, embrassing, a man and a woman. All that remains from that night is an earing in shape of a flower and two metal bracelets, blackened by the fire, costume jewellery given back to the family. Orphan children do not attend their parents funerals, they are taken care by then raised by one of their aunts.

Celine Milliat Baumgartner attempts with this text a long work of memory, to portray her missing parents. A father so often away for his work, an actress mother who kisses Depardieu in a movie by Truffaut.

Then comes the tale of the nearly normal childhood of a child without parents.

Text is published by Editions Arléa.
