In 1999, Arthur Nauzyciel directs “Le Malade imaginaire” by Molière, in which he integrates “Le Silence de Molière” by Giovanni Macchia. In this way, he reunited Molière and his daughter Esprit-Madeleine on stage in a gesture of repair and legacy.
The performance sheds an intimate light on Molière’s last play, which takes on the appearance of a veiled confession.
It tells of a world where the past haunts the present and Art tries to repair the wounds of reality.

The healing of two souls in an unforgettable story about love that is beyond death.
