CATHERINE GRAINDORGE (BELGIUM)
SAT 28 SEPT
Z-ARTS, 335 STRETFORD ROAD, HULME, MANCHESTER, M15 5ZA
On the 19th April 2015, Michel Graindorge passed away. The politically committed lawyer and public figure was also the father of the actor and violinist Catherine Graindorge. A man dies, a daughter loses her father.
Catherine Graindorge tells the story of the bond between father and daughter and the loss of what we love. With words, images and music, she goes back to the last fifteen months of her father’s life, to their common past but also, and even more so, on the traces left by those who are gone. As a storyteller, she distils emotions, plays with the absurdity of situations, and handles the poetry of images and humour to construct a story that is at once funny, tender and moving
Catherine Graindorge always uses the reality of situations, events big or small that concern or move her. In this autobiographical project, her artistic approach is intimate; she has chosen to perform a solo act, mixing theatre and sound.
