With Hedda, a portrait of several women, Aurore Fattier immerses us in the last days of rehearsals for Ibsen's famous play Hedda Gabler. Laure Stijn, a theatre director in her forties, is staging the play. As the work progresses, memories of her sister Esther, a young actress who died fifteen years earlier, are revived. The videos and set design help create multiple mirror effects between fiction and reality. In this play, Aurore Fattier chooses not to depict a fascinating heroine confronting her tragic destiny. Rather, she questions this myth and invites us to find in Ibsen’s work a different way of telling the story of a woman's life.
