Jérôme Bel devotes a portrait to her, for and with the dancer Elisabeth Schwartz.

In the name of progress, machines are gradually replacing human beings in many trades – unless it is groups of people who, choosing profitability, sideline others...

Outrage au public d'Émilie Charriot, d'après le livre de Peter Handke
For Émilie Charriot, theatre holds the possibility of an intense relationship, as fragile as it is strong, in a way that is hardly possible in everyday life.
