Louis(e) is a theatrical biography of the artist Louise Bourgeois. This brilliant woman, who lived to the great age of 98, is best known for her bronze sculptures of gigantic spiders, which travel around the world from museum to museum.
But she left us a 70 years worth of work, an intricate exploration of intimacy, emotions, psychoanalysis and the workings inside the mind of a woman artist. The purpose of the pieces is to express emotions.
The latter is what interests us most.
How does an artist canalise and transcend emotions to bring them into a work of art?
How do women continue working and fighting without recognition (her real recognition came at the age of 70)?
How is our perception of a work of art influenced by where we stand in the world?
