A young man who has just emerged from school, a poet born with a dreamy and tormented imagination, throws on paper his tumultuous thoughts, the impressions of his first amorous experiences, his anger, his reflections, and all that agitates his soul inflamed.

A vibrant room in which the young Gustave puts his heart bare. All that Flaubert delivers in a disorder that gives vertigo, reveals the richness of his poetic talent, the anguish of his passionate temperament, his anti-conformism.

William Mesguich invades the scene, burns the space of his presence.
His youth, his ardor, his vibrating sensibility are put at the service of "madness", which he dares to devour. One follows second after second his breathless course, his silences and his poetic gestures. He magnificently interprets the poet's words.

Un jeune homme tout juste sorti de l'école, poète naissant à l'imagination rêveuse et tourmentée, jette sur le papier ses pensées tumultueuses, les impressions de ses premières expériences amoureuses, ses colères, ses réflexions, et tout ce qui agite son âme enflammée.

une pièce vibrante dans laquelle le jeune Gustave met son cœur à nu. Tout ce que Flaubert livre dans un désordre qui donne le vertige, laisse entrevoir la richesse de son talent poétique, les angoisses de son tempérament passionné, son anticonformisme.

William Mesguich envahit la scène, brûle l'espace de sa présence.
Sa jeunesse, sa fougue, sa vibrante sensibilité sont mis au service de la "folie", qu'il ose dévorante. On suit seconde après seconde son parcours haletant, ses silences et sa gestuelle poétique. Il interprète magnifiquement les mots du poète.
