"Collecting at its best is very far from mere acquisitiveness; it may become one of the most humanistic of occupations, seeking to illustrate by the assembling of significant reliques, the march of the human spirit in its quest for beauty..."
(Arthur Davison Ficke)

Jeanne d' Arc-La Transgression

A statement from Siham who plays the lead role in:

"Jeanne d' Arc-La Transgression"

Starting April the 19th, and for three week-ends in a row, a reconstitution of Jeanne d'Arc's trial will be presented at 3330, Saint Claude avenue.

In the city of New Orleans, where her statue thrones - imperial - it feels like an honor to personify the never-dying figure of Joan of Arc, maid of Orléans.

Based on the original transcription of the trial, six months of a merciless trial..

- A word to the wise is enough !

" I can do without a warhorse, I can drag about in a skirt, I can let the trumpets and the banners and the knights and the soldiers pass me and leave me behind as they leave other women ; only if I can still hear the wind in the trees, the larks in the sunshine, the young lambs crying through the healthy frost (...) Without these things I cannot live, and by your wanting to take them away from me, or from any human creature, I know that your counsel is of the devil, and that mine is of God"
