“The triumph of fame” is part of a six-poem collection by Petrarca (1304-1374) entitled I trionfi. These poems describe life stages by depicting duels that confront different virtues: Fame defeats Death, but is in turn defeated by Time and Eternity. In the backstage of the theater, beyond the stage, Marie-Caroline Hominal receives one guest at a time, eliminating the codes of theatrical artifice, choosing instead a one-to-one encounter.
Duration: 15 minutes.
Madmoiselle Marie-Caroline Hominal is supported by the City of Geneva, the Canton of Geneva and Pro Helvetia, Swiss foundation for culture.
