A storyteller tells the story of Marie Curie and the exceptional destiny of this grande dame of Science.

"I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist is also a child placed in front of natural phenomena that impress him like a fairy tale." (Marie Curie, 1933).

After a difficult childhood in Poland, Maria Sklodowska went to Paris where she met Pierre Curie. Together they discovered polonium and radium in a makeshift laboratory. A storyteller tells the story of Marie Curie and the exceptional destiny of this grande dame of Science. This poetic narrative addresses all from the age of 6 years (duration 45 minutes).
