The Escape of Iris Dupont in French / en français HERE/ICI

The Escape of Iris Dupont


On the 1st May 2020, COVID 19
lock down, 30610 Gard, France:
Madame Iris Dupont risks all
when she decides to escape
 and go outside.

It was in the month of March 2020 that the world as a whole and life
as Iris knew it - totally changed.  France went into lock down.
A pandemic, which especially targeted elderly persons, was on the rampage.


People were confined to their homes.
In nursing homes, residents are imprisoned in their rooms.
Fear spreads, and streets become deserted.


In this theatrical piece, Iris Dupont is
in solitary lock down, experiencing this new way of life as the days, weeks and months go by.


is a mask theatre piece created
during COVID 19 lockdown.
