Presentation

  • Les Amants lumineux by Lydie Dattas,
    in alternation with works for organ by Johann Sebastian Bach.

    It sounds like a dialogue between two mystics. One, Raphaëlle, tells the other, Gabriel, of her pain at being abandoned by Mansour, with whom she had a spiritual relationship: “He was more precious to me than a brother, than a lover. He was the mirror of God. He broke: God is shattered into pieces.” But slowly we learn the circumstances of this separation, and the tragic of dereliction gives way to the prosaic, and even the comic, quality of the break-up.

    Dominique Féret, April 2014

    Lydie Dattas is twenty when her poems are discovered by the poet Jean Grosjean, who works as a reader for Gallimard. The letters they start exchanging eventually lead to the publication in 1970 by Mercure de France of a first book, Noone. It is only in 1999 that Lydie Dattas relates her first meeting with poetry and light when, only three years old, having fallen sick, she was entrusted to the care of a nun whose kindness saved her (The Experience of Kindness). The daughter of a virtuoso organist, she starts wondering very early about the absence of women in the history of art. She does, however, have a very clear vision of what a great actress is, as her mother is a tragedian. In La Foudre (Lightning), published in 2011, she paints the portrait of her first family, that of her childhood, and of the adoptive gipsy family she chose for herself, the family of the lion tamer Alexandre Romanès, with whom she founded the Lyida Romanès circus. After their break-up, she published Les Amants lumineux (The Luminous Lovers) and Le Livre des anges (The Book of Angels), before starting work on La Chaste vie de Jean Genet. Published in 2006, this isn't the first book the famous author prompted her to write. At the very start of their long friendship, in 1977, his taunts led to her writing a cutting and deep poem, La Nuit spirituelle (The Spiritual Night), a powerful response which started as a letter to Genet and ended up being its own book.
