Madame de Sévigné was born in Paris on January the 5th, 1626. She wrote more than thousand letters to her daughter. Today, her epistolary is one of the most famous because of the particular originality of its writings, portraying an unusual quality for the period. Sévigné frequented the court: in her letters we find incredible descriptions of Versailles, hunting witches, the vagaries of the Roi Soleil and his lovers. Above all, we read the immense love of a mother to her daughter. The collective DOYOUDaDA stages a contemporary interpretation of Sévigné’s letters, by making a pop epic, a high-speed trip in the complex personality of one of the most interesting women of the Great French Century. Between palace intrigues, health advice and haute couture, the audience will realize that the court of Louis XIV is not so far from today.
