“In 1924, the very year that André Breton published the Manifesto of Surrealism in the columns of Le Figaro, we find the author of Season in Hell locked up in his hospital room in Charleville. Alive he is, even more visible than at 20 when he decides to put an end to poetry. It’s a genius on fire who settles in front of us, haggard, illuminated but even more flamboyant than he has ever been. It is no longer a body that speaks, it is a soul. A man “without soles and without wind” who invites his nurse as well as Paul Verlaine, Alfred Jarry, Ignace de Loyola, Léo Ferré on his “Drunk Boat”… As if, on a stroke of madness, and before the last lights of modernity overwhelm him and his fellows, Arthur Rimbaud allowed himself a masterful lesson in life”, says the synopsis of the play.
