With the show « Les femmes de génie sont rares ? » (« The women of genius are rare? ») the company offers an evocation of the life of Marie Curie across an adaptation of texts of Pierre and Marie Curie and their daughter Eve by Anne Rougée, staged by Stephane Baroux.

Who was Marie Sklodowska Curie? From her poor and studious youth in Poland up to the glory conferred by its two Nobel prizes of 1903 and 1911, what was indeed her course, her world, her genius?

She had come to Paris to satisfy her wish to study and her taste for scientific experiments. She meets there Pierre Curie who quickly becomes a companion of life and job, sharing with her all his scientific and humanist dreams. But the way which she is going to follow to perform her researches, since the discovery of the radioactivity until the advent of radiotherapy, will be quickly plunged into mourning with the accidental decease of Pierre.

Return the today's public sensitive to the face of Marie Curie in all her humanity and beyond his heroine's legend of science, this is the party which was taken by Les Passeurs d 'Ondes. With the show « Les femmes de génie sont rares ? » (« The women of genius are rare? ») the company offers an evocation of the life of Marie Curie across an adaptation of texts of Pierre and Marie Curie and their daughter Eve by Anne Rougée, staged by Stephane Baroux.
