Laitue Matinal·e

General public
75 minutes

Laitue Matinal-e is like the Trojan War: it’s a show that will never take place.

Antony will never be emperor.

Cleopatra will always die.

Caesar will always be Caesar.

Lionel will never be a woman.

Xavier will never be a man.

They will always speak French.

And Rome will fall.

Rome must always fall.

Laitue Matinal-e is the project of transmasculine artist artist Lionel Lehouillier, who uses the work to ask questions of the binarity of the French language.
