Then, from the 24th to the 27th of May, the show La Fureur de ce que je pense, directed by Marie Brassard, will be performed at the National Arts Center (NAC), developing the tribute paid to Nelly Arcan thanks to six actresses and a dancer in a confusing scenography that seems both to imprison and to protect the bodies of the performers.
