At La Scala, The Woman to Whom Nothing Happens attempts adventure

Tight blond hair, candid face and almost immobile hands. She doesn’t have a name, she goes by “ She”. “Confined in her head”, on a blank set, she seems elsewhere. Alone in her thoughts, busy with household chores. Mechanically, “She” presses the button on the washing machine and the dishwasher, orders potatoes on the internet, but the virtual escapes her.

She consults her history. “ It displays a suspicious dark blue. » She is an ordinary woman. As in The Desert of the Tartars, by Buzzati, She is waiting for a “thing”. She doesn't know which one and if she wants this thing to happen to her. The ringing of the telephone sounds like an intrusion. The electrical system suddenly shuts down.

Like a robot or a puppet operated by an invisible master, this woman who resembles many will reallocate her identity and understand her personality. Léonore Chaix is ​​an ideal “She”. Trained in Shakespeare

Sitting, stoic, on a chair, Léonore Chaix transmits a whole range of emotions under the direction of surgical precision of her comrade Anne Le Guernec. His game relies entirely on speech, words, seemingly innocuous and banal, and yet decisive for his conduct. “ How much can we trust events? », asks the narrator, on the lookout for the slightest sound.

Léonore Chaix has known the music of words for a long time. Several years ago, she created, with the actress Flor Lurienne, the program Déshabez-mots on France Inter which they had transposed on stage. Furthermore, she is the daughter-in-law of a member of Oulipo, the Ouvroir de literaturepotential. As a child, she was dyslexic and amazed by A Midsummer Night's Dream performed outdoors.

As an adult, she remains marked by Pôles, one of Joël Pommerat's first plays. Léonore Chaix is ​​also a yoga teacher. A detail that is important. Nothing goes wrong in this show, under control from A to Z. The domestic accident is not due to chance. If his character goes crazy, his interpreter manages to cheer us up.
