Amphitryon  creation


The all powerful Jupiter, who has fallen for Alcmène seduces her by becoming the double of her much too well-loved husband, the brave General Amphitryon, who has gone to war, and who makes an early return... Beyond the endless cases of mistaken identity in which everyone is entangled, so much so that no one knows any more who exactly they are dealing with, absolute power and pleasure are the themes Bérangère Jannelle chose to emphasize. In Molière’s time, there was no doubt that the King of Gods was the incarnation of the Sun King, which made the play a scandal as much as a success. "I’ve always been interested in the relationship between the private and the political spheres, which here is made strikingly and brutally apparent. The public good no longer exists, deception is everywhere, including in one’s image .Who, really, is made a fool? Not Alcmène, not completely, she is no victim. Even in a great and sincere love story, dreaming of another man is normal. The unconscious must be able to travel. From desire emerges fantasy. Spending the night with a god, is it dream or reality? Who is pulling the strings? Who is playing whom? Throughout the play, where theatrical art and its secrets are at stake, some questions are left unanswered".
