Highlights

Belvedere by Ana-Maria Bamberger, an award-winning international playwright and physician based in Paris and Hamburg, is a thrilling, witty, and moving play about creativity, mental health, and memory. Known to be a subtle and exciting game between reality and illusion, Belvedere is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. Put on stage with Leslie Clack, Patricia Kessler, and Martin Vaughan Lewis, Ana-Maria's work will come to life for only a few performances in the month of April to play with your state of mind.

Story

Something strange is afoot at the Belvedere Psychiatric Clinic. Anton, a famous writer, has checked himself into Belvedere to receive treatment for his hallucinations. Before he even realizes it, Dr. Defoe, an old doctor seemingly out of practice, finds interest in Anton and decides to make him a subject of his precarious medical study. Things couldn't seem to get more mixed up until a mysterious visitor from Anton's past appears and the border between reality and imagination becomes everything but clear.

Théâtre de Nesle

8, rue de Nesle - 75006 PARIS

A 17th century private mansion with a vaulted cellar, noble families until 1789 and now a theater with a varied program with a small 45-seat hall for more intimate shows and a large 75-seat hall located in the cellar . Already enough to delight!
