    Constance, 19, comes to visit her mother in the visiting room of the prison where she is serving a ten-year sentence for the murder of her violent husband. Their intimate and unedited exchanges attempt to reconstruct their shattered lives.

    A huge grey concrete wall at the back of the stage, a table, two chairs, the sound of keys in a lock, author and director Delphine Hecquet takes us straight into the prison's inner sanctum for the duration of a visiting room. This vibrant face-to-face encounter between a mother and her daughter, performed by two remarkable actresses in osmosis, is set on a rotating stage, offering an infinite number of angles and points of view. Through small touches, between silences, unspoken words and upheavals, conjugal violence is revealed, from the first gesture to psychological confinement, from the total hold of one being over another to the impossible escape, to the drama.

    Inspired by one of her previous shows, Balakat, in which a prisoner dialogues with a journalist, Delphine Hecquet has rigorously documented the intra-family drama and questions the possibility of repairing oneself when one is a victim and a criminal. Striking.

    directed by Delphine Hecquet
    with Marie Bunel, Mathilde Viseux
