Rose Deville

Premiere in Avignon

Show resume

Rose Deville testifies, with a lot of authenticity, of her deportation. This is the story of a 22-year-old sheep keeper who just wanted to help those who needed it without imagining what will happen next: "we took risks a bit unconsciously".
The following is a long journey to the horror, Montluc, Ravensbrück, Zwodau, 100 km from Prague, last resort before dark. In a sober but very evocative staging, true story, theater, reading, music and video, highlight this raw speech without retouching. The striking testimony of a lambda person taken in World History.

"A striking testimony of a lambda deported person among the deportees, lost in a long list. It was Rose, a joy of life, a morale of steel even to the test of the camps. » FRANCE 3 RHÔNE-ALPES

"The character is powerfully interpreted by the actress who took this poignant text to her body, revealing also the militant side of Rose. LA VOIX DE L'AIN
