By: Marguerite Yourcenar (adaptation by Marc Rosich). Dir.: José María Pou. With: Carmen Machi, Cayetana Guillén Cuervo, Nathalie Poza, Ana Torrent.
In ‘Fires’ Marguerite Yourcenar pushed her own writing to the limit in the aftermath of a failed love affair. As performed by Carmen Machi, the text lays bare the author’s feelings, a prose poem that draws on the voices of Classical heroines.
