Virgine Despentes’ novel was a global success. And the first part of the theatrical adaptation of Vernon Subutex by Angela Konrad, presented in 2022, won over critics and audiences. This piece with strong rock resonance is back at Usine C, divided into three parts. Part 1 is presented alone, the 2e and 3e shutters are the subject of a single show. The full version of the show is sold out. Whichever you choose, expect to be jostled and laughed with a lump of unease in your stomach. Be careful, it’s moving!

Until May 17, at Usine C

Like call me By Your Namethe Italian filmmaker wonderfully captures the ups and downs of adolescent passion and demonstrates with camouflaged modesty that tennis is the perfect setting for a sulphurous sports drama,” writes our journalist Pascal LeBlanc.
