Billie Zangewa painted on self(e)
Billie said : "I think the ultimate act of resistance is self-love. "Scraps of silk to paint itself, its family, a birthday, a cup of tea in a kitchen, the simple acts and images of a daily life that she painted in bright and serious colors. Nothing narcissistic, but, on the contrary, the views that open on to the world... the large green leaves of the trees filling the way back to the school of the son held by the hand of his mother, long and elegant, a little bent over, brown the skin under the pale yellow colour. Billie herself. As a poetry.

The Lear Piccoli
" King Lear ", with Michel Piccoli and Julie-Marie Parmentier in the staging of André Engel. © © Marc Vanappelghem
A journalist asked Michel Piccoli, then the first peak of his career – he had to prove itself as an incredible Gift Juan in the realization of television director Marcel Bluwal in 1965, what he would choose between cinema (he had already turned The Contempt of Godard), theater and television. The actor replied without hesitation : "The theatre. Because it is there that everything can be learned and there always as I come back. "
In this Lear breathtaking, directed by the great André Engel in 2006, Piccoli sums up the entire theater in the game of illusion and pain, ironic and disillusioned and yet believing again that love can be measured, a poor fool who asked his daughters which loved him the most... To it, it léguerait his kingdom. The older fawn, the last, the favourite, Cordelia, remains silent. PiccoLear is a brand that was dismantled, vagabond of himself, his crown was useless against Edmond the bastard who comes to taunt him.
Sad sire to the lost glory, Piccoli is magnificent, even to the earth, lying in the snow. Royal beggar, the madman and tender, lucid and prophet, wise and hilarious. It is a theatre of the film noir, with its big plans and its faces decrypted by the camera. A magnificent tribute to one of our greatest comedians...
