Madame Bovary

Gustav Flaubert / Ivan Buraj author

Ivan Buraj directed by

“I have my project. The project of myself. I am looking for myself.”

Since 2010 for the first time in the history of mankind more people live in towns than in villages, babe! Live your dream! Emma lives in a village. Charles Bovary, a young doctor is watching her. Emma became Madame Bovary. Does she belong to him? Does she belong to the village? Monogamy? I can´t stand watching it! Start singing at least! Emma needs the world, not manure. She must escape, she must keep escaping all the time. She needs a town! Art! Cafés! DJ´s! Partieees! Paris! Paradise, babe! More reality, more life! First Rodolphe appears. (Is it fate?) Then Leon. (Is it fate?) The Virgin Mary, is it fate? Emma can finally become herself. Real! But reality costs money. And money belongs to somebody. Who does Emma belong to? Who does her desire belong to? Who does her reality belong to? An authorial scenic experiment about craving for one´s own exceptionality, for the fight with one´s own image and for the relationship between craving and power.
